Leadership – The character and effectiveness of any church is directly related to the quality of its leadership. Scripture emphasizes the importance of godly overseers with very specific standards for evaluating those who would serve in that position. Church at The Cross committed to the pattern established in the New Testament, and are grateful to the Lord for the qualified, able servants who provide spiritual oversight to the body of Christ.
1 Peter 5:2-5
“Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock; and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away.”
