What is an Elder?

According to our understanding of 1 Timothy 5:17, elders are the leaders of the local church. As such, they should be pace-setters in spiritual matters, an example to the flock, and persons of vision and faith.

Who are our Elders?

Luke Eure, Jerry Jarrell, Ted Murrell, John Sechrest, David Styons, Harry Wilson, Harvey Yarbrough
