With Jesus Christ as the head of the church, Sanctuary is governed by a Board of Elders:
Dr. Ridge Burns:
I have been attending Sanctuary since the very first Sunday. I grew up in a wonderful Christian home and surrendered my life to Jesus at a early age. It was in college that my faith became alive and lead me into ministry as a youth pastor and now non-profit ministry management . As the CEO of InFaith we touch over 700 mission points in the United States with a staff of 210 missionaries. Prior to that I was the President of Forest Home for a decade. I love that at Sanctuary we value each person and the unique gifts each person brings to our church and we encourage each individual to express those gifts in service. I have been married to Robanne for 42 years and we have two children and one granddaughter.
