The following men are not paid staff, but are volunteer elders who serve alongside the full-time pastors of the church. These men have two overall responsibilities. First, they are to help in shepherding (caring for) the flock, and secondly, they are to be examples to the flock (1 Peter 5:2-3). The Elders are here to serve your spiritual needs.
Qualifications for elders are found in 1 Timothy 3:1-7
This is a faithful saying: If a man desires the position of a bishop, he desires a good work. A bishop must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach; not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous; one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?); not a novice, let being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil. Moreover, he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
