What Are Elders?
Elders are central to our leadership at Parkway. The Lord Jesus Christ is the Head of His church (Eph. 1:22; 5:23; Col. 1:18). Jesus is the Chief Shepherd of each local congregation (1 Pet. 5:4; Heb. 13:20). As Head, Jesus calls qualified men (1 Tim. 3:1–7; Titus 1:5–9) to care for and shepherd His blood-bought people as elders (Acts 20:28; 1 Pet. 5:1–4). These men are called by God and chosen by the congregation to serve alongside the Senior Pastor to shepherd and oversee the church.
