Leadership Team

According to the New Testament, elders are responsible for the primary leadership and oversight of a church. Elders lead the church [1 Tim 5:17; Titus 1:7; 1 Peter 5:1-2], teach and preach the Word [1 Timothy 3:2; 2 Timothy 4:2; Titus 1:9], protect the church from false teachers [Acts 20:17, 28-31], exhort and admonish the saints in sound doctrine [1 Timothy 4:13; 2 Timothy 3:13-17; Titus 1:9], visit the sick and pray [James 5:14; Acts 20:35], and judge doctrinal issues [Acts 15:16]. In biblical terminology, elders shepherd, oversee, lead, and care for the local church.
A preacher is a minister or servant of Jesus Christ (1 Timothy 4:6). His work is to present the Lord’s Word, the Gospel, to all men (Acts 6:4; Romans 15:16). The minister is to spiritually lead, feed and strengthen the body of Christ through living a Godly life, sound doctrinal sermons, classes and positive interaction with the members, the brotherhood and the community.
