Gospel Community Church is elder led. Currently, we are led by one elder, Jay Sutherland.
JAY SUTHERLAND grew up in the Outer Banks and continues to serve the Lord in his hometown of Nags Head. He is husband to Alicia and father to Cora and Evie. He teaches English as a Second Language at a nearby elementary school, as well as various additional jobs in the summer season. He enjoys surfing and spearfishing.
He graduated from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary with a master’s degree in Intercultural Studies before spending five years as a missionary in South Asia with the International Mission Board. His IMB training and experience has helped inform the discipleship focus of Gospel Community Church.
