Elder Board

Elder Board

Ever wondered what the church board is and who is on it? We have two different types of boards: Elders and Deacons. The church’s Elder Board are church-elected individuals who function as spiritual leaders in all matters pertaining to the church. They are spirit-filled and hold mature Christian experience, knowledge, and wisdom. Elders, who are called by God to be spiritual leaders (Romans 12:8), serve with diligence and shepherd over God’s people. They are to seek the will of God in all matters, to be led by the Spirit, and above all follow the admonition of the Word (Acts 20:17-32, 1 Timothy 5:17-20, 3:1-7).

Deacon Board

The Board of Deacons (or the ‘trustees’) are servants to the church and Elder board in the day-to-day, practical, and social cares of the church, thus freeing the Elders to give themselves to the ministry of the word and prayer. The Deacons are responsible for the holding of all church property.
