Our Leadership

Elders and Staff

The Fellowship is a church led by Elders.  The Elders provide spiritual leadership and oversight of all aspects of the church.  The Senior Pastor is one of the Elders, and has an equal voice with them in decisions about the church.

Below the Elders, the Staff are responsible for the operational activities of the Fellowship’s ministries.  The Staff report to the Senior Pastor, who functions as the Head of Staff.

Our Elders

Understanding Eldership

We try to be true to the New Testament patterns of church life found in Acts 14 & 20, 1 Timothy 3, Titus 1, and 1 Peter 5. These passages picture a plurality of spiritually mature men who lead and shepherd with a servant spirit.
 
We do not elect or make someone an elder. Only God makes an elder. As a church, we try to be faithful in recognizing who among us has been made an elder by God. If someone has a shepherd's heart for people, is already doing elder-type work and has demonstrated godly character and home life, we recognize God has made an elder.
 
Since someone does not stop being a godly man after 2 or 3 years, our elders do not serve for a fixed term. Like the pastor, elders are called for an indefinite term. Of course, it is possible to remove an elder, or for an elder to remove himself. Elders have also taken a sabbatical for a period of time.
 
The Senior Pastor serves as one of the elders, although not the Coordinating Elder (i.e., not the chairman). He is a paid teaching elder among the ruling elders, 1 Timothy 5:17.
