The Sanctuary has a presbyterian governing structure, which means that the leadership is comprised of the Board of Elders (called the presbytery) (not to be confused with the Presbyterian denomination). These elders oversee the functioning of the congregation, being divided into General Elders (who provide general oversight), and Department Elders (who oversee a specific department in the church). As a smaller congregation, not all of the eldership positions have been filled.

The church administrator and secretary are also members of the governing board, although under normal circumstances (when a quorum of elders is present), they are non-voting members of the board.
