As used in Scripture, the term “pastor” is synonymous with “elder” and “overseer.” The pastors are responsible for the oversight of the church and it’s ministries. The elders are responsible for leading the church to function as a New Testament church. The elders are covenant members of the church. Each elders is a man of prayer and the Word. Their qualifications are defined by specific Scripture passages in 1 Timothy 3:1-7, Titus 1:5-9, Ephesians 4:11-12, 1 Timothy 5:17, and 1 Peter 5:1-4. These qualifications have been affirmed by fellow elders and by the church through a vote of affirmation.
