Fair Haven Church is a congregation of Harbor Churches, which is a multi-site church with a Collegiate Model of organization. Originally chartered as “Fair Haven Reformed Church,” Harbor Churches is now 5 congregations served and governed by one “Consistory.” A “Consistory” in the RCA is the governing body of a local church and consists of Elders and Deacons. The Collegiate Model is described in the Reformed Church Book of Church Order as “two or more congregations served and governed by a single consistory, constituting one church organization.” Within Harbor Churches, each congregation worshipping 200 or more people has Elders and Deacons who serve on the Collegiate Consistory as well as Pastoral Elders and Deacons who serve with the Pastor of that congregation and make up the Campus Leadership Team. The Consistory is charged with governance of the whole church while Pastoral Elders and Deacons are charged with ministry duties within the congregation. The staff are responsible for the empowering of people in the congregation and implementation of various ministries.
