The Elder Ministry of Harvest Hill
Lead - Shepherd - Teach
The elders of Harvest Hill are charged with shepherding the church members like Jesus shepherds his disciples. Like Jesus, they are striving to make teaching central to their ministry, and make Jesus and the gospel the primary content of their teaching. In every decision, they are to lead the people toward knowing and trusting Jesus. They are striving to allow the people see the character of Jesus exemplified in their lives. And just as Jesus often turned aside to pray, so an elder should join Jesus in interceding for his people.
The under-shepherds of Jesus are at their best when they reflect Jesus, the Chief Shepherd.
