At Felton Bible Church we believe God intends for called, gifted, and qualified men to serve the body of Christ as shepherd-leaders; as pastor-elders. This belief stands alongside our complementary conviction that Jesus invests the whole congregation of every church with profound responsibility. Thus, elders lead in a congregational context.
Scripture uses the terms "elder," "pastor," and "overseer," interchangeably - with a particular emphasis on "elder" and "overseer" - to describe one of two biblical offices in the church (the other being "deacon"). All of our elders are pastors. That said, only a portion of our elders serve as "staff elders." Staff elders function on a daily basis as part of the FBC staff. Within the Council of Elders, our servant-leaders fill different ministry roles according to their Spirit-given gifts and the church's needs.
