At The166, we have a team approach for multiple levels of leadership. We believe that having a team offers an opportunity to hear a variety of different voices and expressions. We have various teams comprised of different men and women who give teachings, facilitate Lectio Divina, lead worship and provide governance over our church plant. Everyone in leadership at The166 either has a full-time job or additional vocational responsibilities.
