Elders, described in the New Testament as overseers and shepherds, are called to care for and lead God’s People. At College Church, the elders serve primarily by:
Caring for God’s People
Keeping prayer central to the ministry of the church
Faithfully teaching and preaching the Word of God
The Deacons serve as “ministers of mercy” – coming alongside of people in stressful situations by meeting physical needs, including food, clothing, shelter and financial assistance. The deacons also serve by preparing Communion, providing visitation and practicing hospitality.
