NBC Leadership

Northfield Baptist Church is governed by the congregation under the authority of Christ, having chosen both pastors and deacons to lead the church, as we believe the New Testament instructs. 

Along with these, men and women are chosen to participate in a range of boards and committees that care for all aspects of church life.
