The Bible establishes two offices of leadership in the local church: Elders (also referred to as pastors) and Deacons. The following is a brief description of each:
Pastors (also known as shepherds, overseers, elders) are men who are responsible for the overall pastoral leadership, governing, oversight and teaching of the congregation (Ephesians 4:11-13, I Timothy 3:1-7, Acts 20:28, 1 Peter 5:1-4). A pastor is called to care for Jesus' church by teaching scripture, preaching the gospel, and leading the church.
Deacons serve those in need and help to meet physical needs in the congregation (Acts 6:1-7; I Timothy 3: 8-13). Deacons offer help to those in crisis by assessing their physical needs and working to find practical solutions. Unlike elders who are responsible for teaching the gospel, administering healing prayer, and overseeing the church, deacons focus on extending mercy and compassion.
