Our Elder Team
The elders are the overseers ("shepherds") of this local church. They have the responsibility and authority to give pastoral leadership in the church. Elders must meet the qualifications found in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9.
1 Timothy 3:1-7
This saying is trustworthy: “If anyone aspires to be an overseer, he desires a noble work.” An overseer, therefore, must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, self-controlled, sensible, respectable, hospitable, an able teacher, not addicted to wine, not a bully but gentle, not quarrelsome, not greedy— one who manages his own household competently, having his children under control with all dignity. (If anyone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of God’s church?) He must not be a new convert, or he might become conceited and fall into the condemnation of the Devil. Furthermore, he must have a good reputation among outsiders, so that he does not fall into disgrace and the Devil’s trap. (HCSB)
The reason I left you in Crete was to set right what was left undone and, as I directed you, to appoint elders in every town: one who is blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of wildness or rebellion. For an overseer, as God’s administrator, must be blameless, not arrogant, not hot-tempered, not addicted to wine, not a bully, not greedy for money, but hospitable, loving what is good, sensible, righteous, holy, self-controlled, holding to the faithful message as taught, so that he will be able both to encourage with sound teaching and to refute those who contradict it. (HCSB)

Full Elder Team
Our elders focus on the main tasks given to them in the Scriptures: shepherd God's people and guard sound teaching. Each elder is given the privilege of shepherding a small number of connection groups and their leaders. In this way, every connected Cornerstoner is only one step away from an elder.
