In the New Testament we read how churches were structured as independent local congregations led by men in the capacity of elders and deacons. The qualifications for these leadership roles are found in 1 Timothy chapter 3 and in Titus chapter 1. The elders of our congregation set direction, oversee and care for the spiritual needs of our members. Our Deacons work under the authority of the elders, to facilitate and lead specific ministries and works of the congregation.
Likewise, in our congregation there is a special role for Evangelists who according to 2 Timothy 4:2 are to “Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.”
