Biblically, Elders are the leaders of the church that are synonymously called pastors, bishops, and overseers throughout the New Testament. They minister to the spiritual needs of the church and the community.
Some Elders are paid to focus on their responsibilities full-time and others simply embrace this calling as a primary focus of their life. In an Elder governed church, the Elders are responsible for the vision and leadership of the church. We are so grateful for their leadership!
