biblical Elder Leadership at CrossPointe

The character and effectiveness of any church is directly related to the quality of its leadership. That’s why Scripture stresses the importance of godly overseers and delineates specific standards for evaluating those who would serve in that position. At Cross Pointe Community Church, we are committed to the pattern established in the New Testament, and we thank the Lord for the qualified, able men who provide pastoral and administrative oversight to our church family. The consistent pattern throughout the New Testament is that each local body of believers is shepherded by a plurality of God-ordained elders. Simply stated, this is the only pattern for church leadership given in the New Testament. Nowhere in Scripture does one find a local assembly ruled by majority opinion or by a single pastor.

Jesus promised to build his church (Matthew 16:18) and established Himself as its foundation (1 Corinthians 3:11). In Ephesians 4:8–11, the apostle Paul writes that church leaders are God’s agents in building the church as they equip the saints for the work of the ministry. Our church has been blessed with godly elders who shepherd us willingly, eagerly, and humbly.  Please take a moment to become familiar with our current CPCC Church elders, along with their primary areas of service. If you have any questions for our Elders, feel free to reach out and email them or call the church office to speak with them.  You can contact the church office at 530-221-4871.
