We get the word presbyterian from the Greek word for Elder. So as the name might imply Presbyterians think the role or office of Elder is pretty important. Among other things, we believe the Elders of the church are called by God to assist the Pastor in caring for the spiritual needs of the church. Elders teach, lead, support, encourage and pray for members of a particular congregation.
At Grace & Peace, Eric Douglas, Steve Burdette, and Kevin Bolen serve as Elders alongside our Pastor.
