The Board of Elders
The Board of Elders is dedicated to serving the Lord in overseeing Good Shepherd’s care of the flock, the worship services of God’s house, the Word and Sacrament Ministry, teaching the Word, instruction of the young and the people of God, the spiritual needs of the people of God, and work in conjunction with the pastor, the Elders being an offshoot of the Office of Pastor. They also participate in worship services, such as the serving of Holy Communion with the pastor, and various other tasks. The elders also help the pastor in the care of shut-ins, and other important matters as to the spiritual needs of the people of God. Currently there are five Elders, with a Head Elder who also serves on the Church Council.
