At Chesapeake Christian Fellowship, we are strengthened by our Elders. Our Elders are men who fulfill the Biblical qualifications of Elders found in 1 Timothy 3:1-7.
The Elders serve primarily as a counsel for the Senior Pastor. They are to pray for him, encourage him, support him, assist him in difficult decisions, and hold him accountable to the Word of God. They also handle the church benevolence (Elders) fund and assist in ministering to the spiritual needs of the individual members.
The mission of the Elders is to lead, teach, protect, and love the body of believers (Ephesians 4:11-13). The Elders spend many hours praying for the believers, studying, and visiting the sick. The desire of the Elders is to serve the Lord as well as the brothers and sisters of CCF. They promise to pray and seek the Lord’s will in serving you.
