|Contributions from our Members: Priorities ... Ever notice how God's priorities aren't usually man's priorities? Man often is tempted to do things "outside in"--because he has to "maintain this appearance" (or what would others think?), but God tends to do things "inside out" by taking care of our hearts and attitudes and then having the rest fall in place.|

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.
