Bro. Greg Lambert
The New Testament uses several terms to describe those men who are to oversee local congregations of God's people. The word "elder" speaks of one who is mature in the faith, while the word "shepherd" speaks of the work these men have in watching over the flock of God.Elders are responsible to do many things, including, but not limited to:
1) oversight and prayer over the spiritual life of the church body
2) praying for the physical and mental well-being of church members
3) teaching God’s word
4) being peacemakers and decision makers in the church
For this reason I left you in Crete, that you should set in order the things that are lacking, and appoint elders in every city as I commanded you—
