Our Elders

Crossway is an Elder-led church.  In the New Testament we find four titles used for the officers of the local church: Elder, Overseer, Pastor (or Shepherd), and Deacon. The first three terms are used interchangeably to refer to the same office. Elders (Pastors) were appointed to teach and to oversee each local church.  Each Elder has the same amount of authority as any of the others, but not necessarily the same role or specific ministry to fulfill.  Depending on their spiritual giftedness and availability, our Elders will vary in time commitment or forms of public ministry.

Our Deacons

Deacons are official servants within the church, helping to free the Elders from many temporal concerns (Acts 6:1-6).  They have delegated authority under the Elders to lead particular ministries (Acts 6:3, 6).
