Under Jesus’ authority over the entire church, He has entrusted local churches to elders who lead under Him. They teach, lead, care for and protect the church. (1 Peter 5:1-5, Acts 20:17 & 28) There is always a plurality of pastors and elders found in the New Testament.
Tomball Bible Church is Elder-led. A board of lay-elders and the senior pastor comprise the governing body of the congregation, while also serving as shepherds and teachers of Godly character (Titus 1:5-9;).
