shepherds, overseers, pastors.

The Bible gives a clear picture for how the church is to be structured. She has members. We also know some of those members are her leaders, and those leaders, according to the Word of God, are called eldersIf the word “elder” is confusing to you, think of elders as pastors who teach, lead, model and pray for their church.  


1 timothy 3:1-7

The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task. Therefore an overseer[a] must be above reproach, the husband of one wife,sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God's church? He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil.Moreover, he must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, into a snare of the devil.
