OUR TEAM OF ELDERS
Elders are leaders of the church whose primary task is to discern the mind of Christ for a particular Christian community. The pattern of elders leading local churches emerged in the early church (Acts 6:1–7), and several New Testament letters explain what this important role entails (1 Timothy 3:1–7; 1 Peter 5:1–4; Titus 1:6–9). One way to summarize the role of elder as presented in the New Testament is to use the acronym G-O-E-S*. First, elders are guardians who uphold the truth, goodness, and beauty of the Gospel and protect the church from theological error, moral failure, and spiritual danger. Second, elders are overseers who lead the church through wise planning and decision making. Third, elders are called to be examples of Christ through their way of life. And fourth, elders are shepherds who care for members of the community and reach out to those who are disconnected.
