Life Church Leadership

At Life Church we are looking to build church the way they did it in the Bible. In the New Testament there were two types of leadership within the church.

First, there were elders (also called overseers or pastors) - men who took the ultimate responsibility for leading, teaching, caring for and protecting the church. Second, there were deacons - men and women who worked alongside the elders to help them, by running and coordinating various aspects of church life.

You can read about this in the Bible:

  • Acts 20:28 
  • 1 Peter 5:2
  • Hebrews 13:17.
