“Let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of double honor,
especially those who labor in preaching and teaching.” (1 Timothy 5:17, ESV)
Grace Church is an elder-led congregation. The Scriptures teach that a plurality of Elders governed individual New Testament churches (Acts 14:23; Acts 20:28; Titus 1:5; Philippians 1:1). The Scripture does not mention any congregations featuring a stand-alone pastor and leader. A plurality of godly Elders, exercising their individual giftedness, squares with the Scripture’s teaching that wisdom is found in a multitude of godly counselors (Proverbs 11:14; Proverbs 12:15; Proverbs 15:22; Proverbs 19:20; Proverbs 24:6).
