Godly church leaders are responsible to lead God's flock by walking personally with Him and working together to help church members do the same.
God believes leadership of the local church is so important that he addresses the issue in detail 4 times in the New Testament: Acts 20:28-38; 1 Tim. 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9 and 1 Peter 5:1-4.
Emphasis in each list falls upon a leader’s personal character and theological competency. God is primarily interested in who we are and then what we do. We understand that the latter will flow from the former.
These men are the preaching and teaching leaders of our church. A position to be sought but not taken lightly -"Let not many of you become teachers, my brethren, for you know that we who teach shall be judged with greater strictness" (James 3:1).
