1 Peter 5:2-3So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed: shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock.

Church Elders

At Central the eldership consists of full time “called” elders and part time “appointed” elders. All the elders serve together as an equal body with each elder allocated to serve at a particular congregation. Elders have corporate as well as individual responsibilities in the local church. At Central we hold to a complementarian view of gender roles. All elders are qualified godly men.
