What excatly does biblical eldership look like? Should elders know the spiritual pulse of the members that attend their church? Should the elders at my church know where I am at spiritually. These are alot of questions that I am asking to the staff at my church. Do elder's just go to elder meetings and make business decisions? Should elders be involved in the lives of the flock? What exactly should elders be doing? What is their role and function within the Body of Christ? How do I know that they are doing their "vocation"? OK I know I asked alot of questions here, but I am just trying to get some answers about "biblical eldership". What is an overseer? what does one look like?
