The Board of Elders provides oversight of the ministry and operations of the church. It does this task principally by providing guidance and direction at a policy level. The Board meets approximately eight times a year and works closely with the Senior Pastor.

Chris Lee
Chris and his family (wife Jill and three kids, Corbin, Hudson, and Hannah) have attended Tenth Church East Van since 2016, after moving to Vancouver. Before relocating to BC, Chris and family lived in London, ON while Chris completed his training in Emergency Medicine. Chris works as an emergency physician at VGH and UBCH, while also holding leadership positions in disaster preparedness regionally. Tenth Church has been a foundational support for the Lee family since they arrived in Vancouver. In the absence of immediate family in BC, the East Van site has brought meaningful community for them, and Chris and Jill now lead a life group. If Chris is not in the hospital, he can often be found heading towards the mountains seeking adventure and the numinous.

Over the past year, she served as a member of Tenth’s refugee ministry. Elizabeth had a global upbringing which spanned India, Nigeria, UAE, and Canada. 

Ernest Lang
Ernest and his family (including his wife and two sons) have attended services at Tenth's Mt Pleasant location since 2018 after moving from another church in the Lower Mainland.
