Onekawa Bible Church Elders
Serving God and the church as an elder is an incredible honour.
Each elder at OBC must meet the biblical qualifications outlined in 1 Timothy 3:1-7, Titus 1:5-9 and 1 Peter 5:1-4.
An elder is sometimes referred to as a pastor or an overseer or a shepherd. His role is to feed the spiritual sheep with the Word of God and to
protect them from false teachers and teachings.
Elders are also to guard the 'souls' of the saints (Hebrews 13:17) as they will have to give an account to God for their leadership in this area. Their leadership is to model that of Jesus Christ who is the ultimate Head of the church.
