Leadership Of The Church:
At Zeltenreich Reformed Church we desire our leadership structure to be built in the way that the Bible prescribes, and as seen in the Church's historical practice. The structure of the church offices is not set up as a hierarchy or a democracy. It is made up of of servant-leaders who have been chosen and trained to be pastors (Ephesians 4:11), elders (1 Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9), and deacons (1 Timothy 3:8-13). We believe these offices are equally important, but differ in their commissions.
Our PASTOR is tasked with the duty to preach (2 Timothy 4:2), teach (I Timothy 4:16), and care for the flock (John 10). Our ELDERS are charged to govern the church body in a loving and caring way, shepherd God's people (1 Peter 5:1-3), teach and defend Christian doctrine (Titus 1:9), and to prepare the church for serving others (Ephesians 4:12). Our DEACONS are entrusted with stewarding the resources of the body and serving the church as needs arise (Acts 6:1-6; I Timothy 3:8-13). Together our officers oversee the church, creating a healthy environment for God's people to grow.
