At The MET, we have a team that helps to keep an eye on the health of the body as our staff. We call this group: “Elders”. Elders are charged with handling the day-to-day operations of the church, as well as equipping and empowering the members of TheMET to use their gifts. The members are encouraged and invited to run alongside staff in our ministry efforts as we collectively disciple others to follow Jesus. Throughout the New Testament, elders are described as managing aspects of the church as well as shepherding the church.
At The MET, the Lead Pastor serves four simultaneous roles in relation to the elders:
- The Lead Pastor serves as an elder with an equal part in the discussion and decision-making process.
- The Lead Pastor is accountable to the elders in regard to performance and character.
- The Lead Pastor looks to the elders as spiritual counselors and advisors.
- The Lead Pastor serves as a spiritual leader to the elders providing shepherding and spiritual coaching.
