ELDERS
CrossRoads Church is an elder-led church.  The apostles ordained “elders in every church” to carry out the normal government of the churches (Acts 14:23; Titus 1:5). The New Testament speaks of the rulers in the church by the designations of elders, overseers, and shepherds.  While these different terms are used, they all refer to the same office – that of the Elder.  Serving Elders shall also serve as the Board of Directors to exercise the corporate powers of the Church. 
 
CrossRoads is ruled by a plurality of elders. The Bible places the government of a congregation into the hands of a group of elders who rule in a joint capacity and no single individual makes the binding decisions for the church.
