Our Leadership

Following Reformed polity, we value multiple levels of accountability and plurality of leadership. As an emerging church plant, The Neighborhood is formally under the oversight of The River Community Church. The Neighborhood is also partnered with the Antioch School of Church Planting & Leadership Development. Our leaders are active members of The Order of Mission.
