Church Wide Elders

We believe that as an expression of the Church we must have the leadership of Elders. At Rockharbor we appoint Elders who are charged with sharing in the spiritual weight and responsibilities of leading and caring for thousands of people spread across multiple campuses. These Elders, along with their wives, are the spiritual overseers of our church.

Because we are a church of many communities we have two groups of Elders: Church Wide Elders and Campus Elders. The Church Wide Elders hold ultimate spiritual, operational, and financial authority in the governing of Rockharbor Church. Elders serve on the Church Wide Elder Team in three-year terms with an optional extension.

David Van Winkle – Treasurer

Bart Scharrer – Lead Pastor

RHMV Campus Elders

The Church Wide Elders delegate the shepherding and care of the individual campuses to campus-specific Elder teams. Each campus is charged with nominating, from within its church community, men who will serve as Campus Elders. These nominated Campus Elders are interviewed by members of the existing Campus Elder Team and of the Church Wide Elders, and confirmed by Church Wide Elders. Along with their wives, Campus Elders come alongside the Campus Pastor to pray for the staff and campus, monitor its activities, advise its leadership, and aid in decision-making.
