TWENTY SIX EIGHT
Jesus is our leader
When we think about leadership in Twenty Six Eight, we think of Jesus. Above any person or group, He’s our pastor. He purchased His church with His blood (Acts 20:28). He is invested in her welfare more than we are, and He’s dedicated to lead her where He wants her to go.
The Bible tells us Jesus speaks to His church through His Word and Spirit. So we expect to hear from Him. And in His wisdom, He appoints human leaders who are responsible to serve under His guidance.
There are different types of leaders, each with unique authority and distinct function (Ephesians 4:11,12). Those in leadership who are Elders lead, teach, and equip with decision-making authority. Other leaders are Pastors, who lead, teach, and equip in specific areas. Both Elders and Pastors lead Jesus’ church under His care and equip believers to fulfill God’s purposes.
Our leadership is committed to listen to Jesus, appoint qualified persons to fulfill leadership roles, and give to equip Jesus’ people as His Word instructs us.
