What is an Elder? An elder is a qualified and called man, set apart for leadership of the church. Sometimes referred to as an overseer, and described as a shepherd or pastor. (Acts 20:28; Ephesians 4:11-14; 1 Peter 5:1-3)
What are the qualification of an Elder?The qualification of elders are laid out in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9. Though these lists are largely identical, there is some variation. As a result, neither list can be seen as exhaustive. In short, elders are to be known for their prayer life (1 Tim 2:8) modeling Christ-like service (Matthew 20:26-28; 1 Peter 5:2) and being practically responsible in their homes and in the workplace (1 Timothy 3:4-7).
