Our elders are elected by the congregation to exemplify the shepherd-heart of Christ: leading us by imitating God, caring for our souls, and helping guide our paths as we follow Jesus.
Lon and his wife Harriet have four children who have blessed them with thirteen grandchildren. The Bishops are proud to call Deep Run their church home. Lon became a Christian as a child and has been involved in ministry since the mid 1970s. He feels called to what the Lord is doing at Deep Run, is excited about the church's vision, and prays for continued growth and fulfilled ministry in the years ahead.
Steve has been a Christian since childhood and feels the Lord prepared him for this role as an elder through various life experiences, including his time in the US military. He has always been enthusiastic about the mission and vision of Deep Run Church, so much so that he and his wife Krissy relocated with their six children from Glen Burnie, MD to Westminster in order to better participate in the life of the church. Outside of his ministry with Deep Run, Steve is a Project and Design Manager for a management construction firm.
