Online & interactive – Sundays at 10 am Eastern & Pacific

The Orchard is led by a team of pastors who oversee the whole church, and other pastors and leaders who direct specific church ministries or serve in specific ways, some online for the whole church and some in local fellowships. Feel free to contact any of our church leaders! (Just click on the name of the church leader below.) For more information on our leadership structure, see our team approach to church leadership (one of our core commitments), or our blog post: Why we don’t have a senior pastor.
