Elders at FIRST are the group of men, called with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to lead and serve our church family. As instructed in I Timothy 3:1-7 and I Peter 5:1-3, they shepherd, teach, guard and oversee the church with love, humility and the selflessness of Jesus. They are FIRST’s final interpretive authority of the Bible’s meaning and application as it relates to FIRST’s doctrine, practice, policy and discipline.

It’s a position of high honor and great responsibility. Get to know who they are by seeing their pictures and reading brief biographies, then pray for them as they lead and serve.
