The Bible uses several words to refer to these overseers of a local church based on their responsibilities. They are called overseers (Philippians 1:1), elders (Acts 21:18; Titus 1:5-7), leaders/rulers (Hebrews 13:17), bishops (Titus 1:5-7; 1 Timothy 3:1-2) and pastors (Ephesians 4:11). All of these are referring to the same role. These men are to guide, guard, oversee, feed and protect the flock of God. Unfortunaetly, Spring Warrior does not currently have any elders
Deacons are not leaders, but "servants" appointed to serve the needs of a local group. Like elders, men who desired this work were to meet criteria as Paul described to Timothy in 1 Timothy 3:8-12. They are selected by the church, appointed by the elders and assigned specific responsibilities for the church.
