Jesus is the church’s Chief Shepherd, under which Reality LA practices a shared leadership model of church government that consists of the biblical offices of elder and deacon (Philippians 1:1; 1 Timothy 3), and a staff that equips the members for the work of ministry.
Elders & Deacons
Jesus leads the church, elders oversee and shepherd the church, and deacons minister to community group leaders. Our vision for leadership is to have a plurality of elders and deacons in each of the five major regions in Los Angeles who work with regional community group leaders to provide spiritual leadership to the people in their region.

The role of Reality LA’s paid staff is to effectively equip the people of our church for their mission to make disciples of Jesus.
