  • The role of elders and deacons

    Elders were present in every New Testament church (Titus 1:5 Acts 14:23).  Philippians 1:1 addresses the elders and deacons, reminding us there must be both.  Titus 1, 1 Timothy 3, and 1 Peter 5 are some of the main scriptures that describe the function of elders.  Scripture speaks of elders in the body probably 10 times more than it does deacons.  Deacons are servants and examples spiritually to the body.  Both elders and deacons should be in the New Testament church.  Elders are to teach, pray for the sick, shepherd the body, lead the spiritual direction of the church, protect doctrine, and watch out those who would hurt the body (wolves - Acts 20:29).  There should be more than one elder as scripture always refers to elders (plural).  The number of elders in a body should be proportionate to its size so to care for the whole body.  Some elders are on staff (paid), some are not (1 Timothy 5:17).  Elders are men.  We have included their wives in the list below to honor them and because of how vital they are to their ministry and lives.
