Shepherd God’s Flock

Text: I Pet. 5:1-5, I Tim. 4:12-16
Speaker: Jim Newheiser

Because we are planning to ordain Craig Marshall as an Elder of Grace Bible Church, we will be taking a break from James (and I am really excited about the next passage 5:7-11).
I will be preaching from I Peter 5:1-5 and I Timothy 4:12-16 about the call of God upon the Elders and members of the church.
I will explain why we are convinced that Scripture teaches a particular structure for Christ’s church which is to be led by a plurality of qualified gifted elders, assisted by deacons, with every member engaged in the work of ministry. We pay special attention to the responsibilities of our elders to shepherd God’s flock in a Christlike way, and to how members should support their leaders.
