|Contributions from our Members: Pastor... is the office Scriptural? God has from the beginning ordained that there be those who have the gift and responsibility of leadership, both within the confines of the family, as well as the broader context of the Church. Church history shows that all of the major assemblies had a plurality of elders but it seems clear that the Biblical pattern shows one leading elder (called a pastor or bishop) who is responsible for the direction and oversight of the local assembly.|
