Spiritual and overall administrative leadership at Brandywine Valley Baptist Church is provided by the Ministry Leadership Team, currently consisting of pastors and directors, in conjunction with a 12-man Board of Deacons. The Board of Deacons serve a three-year term. The current board of deacons are:

Supporting the church leadership are four permanent committees. Members serve a two-year term which begins in January. The committees are: Nominating, Personnel, Finance and Property. Some of the responsibilities of each Committee is listed below.
The Nominating Committee presents candidates for consideration for a Committee or the Board of Deacons.
The Personnel Committee develops personnel policies and procedures; reviews personnel policies and procedures; work with the Administrator to maintain a competitive compensation structure for all Church Staff; and oversee the annual staff performance review process.
The Finance Committee develops financial policies and procedures; reviews the financial management and risk management policies; monitors cash flow; works with the Administrator to prepare the annual budget, recommend unbudgeted expenditures, or transfer of funds above specified authorization limits; oversee the team of volunteers who assist with the weekly counting and depositing of receipts; and ensures an independent audit or accounting review is performed annually.
The Property Committee develops and presents property policies and procedures; reviews property management policies annually; manage all real property and tangible assets of the Church; provide for the regular maintenance and upkeep of the properties and facilities of the Church; and develop long-term plans for facilities needs and make recommendations.
