Our church is an elder-led congregation. Two words often used to describe elders in Scripture are shepherds and overseers. The criteria for elders is described in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9. Our elder board is comprised of teaching elders (pastors) and ruling elders. We follow the biblical example of the plurality of elders as seen in Exodus 18:13-23 and Acts 20:17. This means that all of our elders and pastors govern and lead together and are responsible for feeding, leading, protecting, and caring for the people that call Heartland home.
