He and the Deacons serve as co-shepherds of PHC. Pastor Bryan is the "Preaching Elder" and brings a sermon most Sunday mornings, evenings, and Wednesday nights.

Sue teaches a Sunday School class for adults, brings the message for Children's Church during the sermon time, helps with counseling, regularly opens her home to guests, and leads a prayer group with women.
Our Deacons, along with the Pastor, are the shepherds of Pleasant Hill Church. Some churches call them Elders. The point is, leadership at Pleasant Hill Church is shared among these six men (and often their wives). Each of these men and their spouses meet the spiritual qualifications of leaders as detailed in the Bible (Mark 9:33-37; 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13; 1 Timothy 3:1-13; 2 Timothy 2:24-26; Titus 1:5-8; Hebrews 13:7; 1 Peter 5:1-4).
