Overseers(1 Peter 5) serving as overseers… because you are willing, as God wants you to be; … eager to serve; … being examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away … Sheep Before anything else we Elders are Sheep in the flock of the Chief Shepherd

  7. Prayer by the Elders - Mick Bennett “Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” James 5:13-16

  8. Expect a Miracle - Dan Taylor “The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops.” James 5:13-16

  10. “One another” “And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22: 39-40 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34 “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” John 15:12 “This is my command: Love each other.” John 15:17

  14. Leadership Joshua-style “Now fear the LORD and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your forefathers worshiped … and serve the LORD. But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served … or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.“ Joshua 24:14-15
