Elders

What does an elder do?

Elders are elected representatives that are responsible for the spiritual direction and welfare of the church. They are to insure that we stay faithful to the Gospel and scripture and to the mission, talents, gifts and opportunities God provides. In the New Testament their role is also described as shepherding since they have the responsibility of caring for the membership of the church. In a larger church that duty is often carried out in part through their recruitment and oversight of lay leaders and staff.

When they meet formally, they are called the session. Our session meets monthly for prayer, planning, guidance and at times problem solving. The senior pastor serves as moderator and decisions are made by the group as a whole.

On a personal level, our elders are involved in the teaching ministries of Grace church, pastoral care and outreach. Most of them participate in multiple ministries and sometimes also serve on sub-committees. They welcome requests to pray for folks or offer guidance.
