We are blessed by the Lord with a number of men who meet the biblical qualifications to be an elder. The Scriptures, Holy Spirit, our Statement of Faith and our Bylaws are the primary means of guidance for the Elders, where all decisions are made in unanimity. An annual process of review and appointment of members is conducted. Overall, all elders are responsible for the shepherding of the congregation which includes both ruling and teaching (1 Timothy 5:17).
