West Charlotte Church is led by Elders and Deacons who have been elected by the congregation.
The Elders (both the Pastors and Ruling Elders) together are responsible for teaching and shepherding the church. The Deacons are responsible for caring for the material needs of the church.
WCC also is a member of a regional group of churches, the Central Carolina Presbytery, which meets quarterly for fellowship, accountability, and partnership in ministry. Our Denomination also has a General Assembly that meets annually in June.

The Yorans have 6 Children: Isaac, Owen, Autumn, Eden, Asher Kai, and Upton.…
