The apostle Paul, while visiting churches in Macedonia, writes to one of his disciples, Timothy who is pastoring the church at Ephesus about how to do church right. In chapter 3 he gives him instruction as to what the character of leaders in the church (elders and deacons) ought to be; ch. 4 he addresses what a pastor is to do; ch. 5 how older women are to disciple younger women in the church; and this week he addresses issues having to do with the relationship between full-time elders or pastors and their congregation.
Few things are more important for a church than having qualified and godly leaders. Titus 1:5-9 teaches us that church leadership is essential and in all appearances it should reflect Christ. Our guest preacher on June 24 was Todd Burus who will be leading a new church plant in Charlestown beginning in the fall of 2013.
Pastors are not called to be professionals. They have a higher calling. Shepherds are called to be protectors. Overseers are called to be the stewards of Christ's bride, shepherds of His blood bought sheep. Pastors are called to live with the sheep and die for the sheep for the glory of God and the good of His people.
