Our Pastors

The Bible teaches us that the office of Elder/Pastor/Overseer is the same office with different names. The qualifications for elders are clearly stated in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9. It is understood that there should be a plurality of elders and that there is to be no hierarchy amongst the elders. The elder's primary calling is to preach the Word, pray, and shepherd the flock of God that has been given to them by God. Because the church is Congregational, the pastors are held accountable by the church members, and hold no more sway in a vote than any other member of the church. It is an honor to shepherd the flock of God as our Good Shepherd has shepherded us!
