In 1 Peter 5:2, Peter exhorts the elders to shepherd the flock. This means protecting, feeding, leading, and caring for the church members. Thus, people may be seen, prayed for, and assistance plans prepared in the elder council meetings as the elders pastor our members.
For more information on Role, Selection, and Terms of Elders please look at the Church Constitution on this website.
“Elders are charged with the biblical responsibility of the oversight of the church. All teaching, policy, staff, budgeting, ministry plans, and matters of oversight are the ultimate responsibility of the Elder Council. ”
