The Lord Jesus Christ is the Head of the church, and has set apart biblically qualified men to lead each local congregation. In the New Testament, it is clear that elders/pastors are to lead through preaching and pastoral care, whilst deacons serve through faithful stewardship and leading in practical ministries of mercy.
