PHBC is blessed with many outstanding lay leaders. Many of these lay leaders constitute our Ministry Leadership Team (MLT). The principle purpose of the MLT is to support the elders and staff, enabling the elders and staff to lead well and the church members to minister with high level of effectiveness.
The MLT is made up of the chairs or ministry leaders from each team and/or ministry officially sanctioned by the church body (as generally defined by allocations of annual budget line items). All MLT members are church members in good standing who are exemplary believers and demonstrate vision, grace, and a call to lead the church toward biblical unity and effectiveness.
Current members of the MLT are Jerry Alvey (elder), Lisa Alvey (Sonshine Kids), Bryan Arnett (associate pastor), Sheila Astacio (administrative assistant), Kim Bongiorni (youth), Susan Bramell (Celebrate Recovery), John Hall (men), Louis Knight (elder), Matt Martin (finance), John Murphy (elder), Laura Donahue (women), Carol Phipps (praise team), Buddy Poynor (building and grounds), Debbie Poynor (hospitality), Brian Sandifer (lead pastor and elder), and Jim Story (elder).
