The head of every church is Jesus, our Chief Shepherd. Under Jesus and His word’s authority, an eldership is established to lead and govern local expressions of his church.
The New Testament prescribes that local churches should be led by a team of elders (also known as pastors, overseers, or shepherds). The Point functions in this way—with a team of elders who work together to lead the church. Elders are qualified men who are called by Jesus and affirmed by the church to oversee the health, growth, and direction of The Point Community Church. They do this primarily through shepherding people, cultivating leaders, and proclaiming and applying God’s Word.
