Our Leadership

Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety. (Proverbs 11:14)

The Myrtle Baptist Church of West Newton has various officers, but only two of these are scriptural officers — the pastor and deacons — both of which are ordained. Other officers are appointed to ensure efficient and effective operational practices. The Pastor holds the highest office in the church and has received the divine call.
