pastor/ elders

Our Pastors oversee the ministries of the church. They carry the primary responsibility for teaching, organizing, and leading the church. They strive to set an example for others to follow and to equip the church that she might accomplish the mission Jesus has established for us.

So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed: shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock. 

1 Peter 5:1-3
