MissioDei Chicago


Role: Elders are the leaders of the church who in the Bible are also called pastors, bishops, and overseers.

Qualifications: The elders are chosen for their ministry according to clear Biblical requirements (1 Timothy 2:11-3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9).

Plurality: Biblical elders are always spoken of in plurality because God intends for more than one to lead and rule over the church as a safeguard for both the church and the elder.

Duties: The elders' duties include teaching, preaching, doctrinal instruction, shepherding, living exemplary lives, using authority, managing, and discipline
