Jesus Christ is the Chief Shepherd of our church and under his leadership the team of elders leads, feeds and protects the flock. He has given the church gifted men to prepare the congregation for the work of ministry.
1 Peter 5:1-5
So as your fellow elder and a witness of Christ’s sufferings and as one who shares in the glory that will be revealed, I urge the elders among you: Give a shepherd’s care to God’s flock among you, exercising oversight not merely as a duty but willingly under God’s direction, not for shameful profit but eagerly. And do not lord it over those entrusted to you, but be examples to the flock. Then when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that never fades away.
