The Garriott Road Church of Christ has been blessed with Godly men who serve as our shepherds, or elders. These men have met the qualifications set forth by the Holy Spirit in I Timothy 3 and Titus 1. Our elders are committed to reaching the city of Enid with the good news of Jesus Christ. They are excited about the future of the Garriott Road church. These men love the Lord, each other and the church of which God has given them the oversight. These elders are always ready to listen to the needs and requests of the congregation. They have regular meetings to discuss and pray over the affairs of the church, but they will talk to you anytime you have a need. Recently our Elders attended the Affirming the Faith Seminar at the North MacArthur Church of Christ.
