Deacons and Elders


BBC is congregationally governed and elder led. The elders embody the Biblical concept of shepherd and overseer with the lead pastor serving as the presiding elder. Some elders are employed by the church as professional clergy (pastors) and some are elected as non-vocational lay elders. All elders are appointed to give spiritual oversight to the church. Elders will meet the qualifications set forth in 1 Timothy 3:1-7; 6:10-12; 2 Timothy 4:1-5; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-3 and Acts 20:17-35.
