Our church is led by a group of men called elders. It’s a term the Bible uses alongside “pastor” or “shepherd” (see 1 Tim. 3:1-7; Tit. 1:5-9; 1 Pet. 5:1-5). These men are appointed by the members of our church to teach the Bible, to provide pastoral care, and to equip us all for ministry to one another.
