Leaders / elders
Christ's Fellowship Church is overseen by men who meet the qualifications of elder/overseer/pastor as described in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1. We believe this is the most Biblical form of church governance. These men have been called by God and affirmed by our church as men qualified to lead and guide the church.

He came to Fort Sill after two years in Korea, and met his wife, Audra, at a local church where both were teaching Sunday school. Parker and Audra married and moved to Fort Riley, Kansas.
