Our congregation is led by spiritually-minded men who have dedicated their lives to the Lord’s service. In the Bible, we read that the early church had elders, deacons, and ministers who all served in particular roles.
Elders (also called “overseers,” “bishops,” or “shepherds”) were the local leaders who were well-established in their communities and their church family. These men are responsible for the spiritual and physical well-being of their flock. For more information, read Titus 1:5-9, 1 Tim. 3:1-7, and 1 Peter 5:1-4.
Deacons (meaning “servants”) were trustworthy, hard-working men who were entrusted with the physical needs of the church. For more information, read 1 Timothy 3:8-13.
Ministers (also called “evangelists” or “preachers”) were charged with teaching the Gospel, setting an example for other disciples of Christ to follow, and equipping the local church for the work of ministry. For more information, read 1 Timothy 4:11-16 and 2 Timothy 4:1-5.
