ELDERS

 

Elders are the male leaders of the church who are also called pastors and overseers (Acts 20:28; Ephesians 4:11; 1 Peter 5:2). The elders are men chosen for their ministry according to clear biblical requirements laid out in 1 Timothy 3:1–7 and Titus 1:5–9. These responsibilities can be summarized in the following four activities: leading, feeding, guiding and protecting. Furthermore, the elders are always spoken of in plurality in Scripture because God intends for more than one man to lead and rule over the church as a safeguard for both the church and the man.

These are the men our congregation has recognized as elders.

DEACONS

Deacons serve an important role within the body of Christ as they ensure the church is well cared for and that the various administrative and service-oriented needs are being handled. This focus ensures that the elders remain committed to the ministry of the word and prayer. The qualifications for deacons can be found in 1 Timothy 3:8-13 and include integrity, generosity, sobriety, a clear understanding of the Bible, a well-ordered home, and a good reputation with people inside the church as well as outside the church.
