Capilano Christian Community is a gathering of people who long to follow Christ with passion and embrace our neighbours with compassion. We are committed to becoming more like Jesus as individuals and as a gathered church, and we are grateful for the leaders who equip and guide us.

Cap Leadership Teams
People matter at CapChurch. Our community has a long history of believing that relationships are primary, and trust is essential. Systems cannot replace relationships, and structures are not a substitute for trust. Because of this, our governance structures are simple, defined more by personhood and plurality than by power or position.
At Cap, the task of leading the church is shared between two groups of people. Firstly, Cap Elders have a dual role: they “oversee” the church and the Lead Pastor, and they also “come under” them through prayer and care. Secondly, the Pastoral Team are the ones responsible for the care and leadership of the church on a day-to-day basis. The Lead Pastor also serves as an elder, and leads the Pastoral Team.
Several times a year, both these leadership groups meet together to discern and assess the ongoing mission and vision of our church.

However, leadership does not come exclusively from the Elders or the Pastoral Team, nor are they the only ones doing “ministry!” There are many outside of our core Leadership Circle who form part of our overall Leadership Team at CapChurch. They serve in ministries such as finance, young people, musical worship, missions, and in various support roles that are essential for the functioning of the church.
