Lead Pastor
Up Team Leader
Leila is humbled and honored to serve as Lead Pastor for Elements. She is an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God, and earned her MA in Theological Studies in 2005. As UP Team Leader she continually pushes the Elements community closer to God and His Kingdom. Her greatest joy is knowing Christ, and greatest passion is helping people find their place in His great Family, challenging and encouraging people to reach far farther than they ever could have otherwise. That, and Indian food. But on a Saturday you will find her hanging out with the coolest man ever (seriously, Eric is awesome), and three of the most terrific, precocious, monstrous little kiddos in the world (Cadence–6 yrs, Aspen–5 yrs, and Chase–3 yrs).

Executive Pastor
OUT Team Leader


Eric is a gifted leader and recruiter, and as Executive Pastor oversees the business end of Elements Church. He is also an extrovert on steroids, who could live in a commune. He is an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God. He received his BA in Bible in 2002, and his Master of Business Administration in 2007. He loves to help people with financial stewardship, and to invent new ways of integrating church and business. As OUT Team Leader, Eric coordinates the arm of Elements Church that reaches farthest into Summit County to serve and love those outside our community.
