Leadership Model

  • The Team of Elders. If you were to visit Wellsprings on several occasions, you might find it difficult to figure just who is in charge. This is because Wellsprings does not hold to the typical church structure.  Instead, Wellsprings adheres to the Biblical model of a team (plurality) of male elders. The church belongs to Christ, and the elders are his undershepherds, responsible to God for the direction, care, and growth of the families God has placed them over.The term elder is synonymous with the term pastor.  However, pastor refers to the function (imperative), while elder refers to the office (indicative).  While some churches have elders who function as administrators and pastors who function as ministers, every elder at Wellsprings is a pastor/teacher. These elders are supported by deacons who assist with administrative elements as well as benevolence and ministry to the families in the body.
  • Bi-Vocational. We have a team of elders as opposed to a single pastor that assists us in our unique approach to ministry.  In this, we can spread around the various responsibilities to leadership and ministry to the congregation.
