Our Leaders

Our Leaders

We have a team of leaders called “Elders” who share the load of decision-making for The Downtown Church. They gather regularly to pray and discuss current and future matters of our church. This isn’t something we made up, it’s in the Bible.

So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed: shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock. 1 Peter 5:1-3, ESV

You can read more about this pattern of leadership in Titus 1:5, Acts 14:23, and Acts 20:17. The men chosen for this team live in a way that reflects 1 Timothy 3:1-16, Titus 1:1-16, 1 Peter 5:1-14. If you want to learn more about eldership, feel free to ask any of them. You can reach out anytime—they are here to serve the church.
