Rosemont Baptist Leadership
Rosemont Baptist is governed ultimately by the Lord Jesus Christ but we understand that the Lord placed leadership in each local body of believers. We are led by our Elder Council. The Elder Council governs the administration and pastoral aspects of the church while the ministerial need of the church is seen to by our deacon body. While being led by the elders and ministered to by the deacons, final authority is vested in the body of believers who make up the membership of Rosemont Baptist.
