We believe that the New Testament teaches and provides
evidence for plurality of church leadership.
Acts 14:23 “Paul and Barnabas appointed elders for them in each church and, with prayer and fasting, committed them to the Lord, in whom they had put their trust.
Acts 20:17 “From Miletus, Paul sent to Ephesus for the elders of the church.”
Acts 20:28 “Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.”
Philippians 1:1 “Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus, To all God’s holy people in Christ Jesus at Philippi, together with the overseers and deacons:”
These church leaders are called elders or overseers and GBC currently has ten men serving in this capacity. Together, these men, with God's guidance and leading, steer GBC and its ministries. The elders then provide direction, leadership, and guidance to the staff to carryout the vision for the church.
