New Testament Elders are drawn from the most spiritually mature people in the church (thus the term presbuteros, or older one). We take this to mean older spiritually or more mature. We do not believe that the physically older are necessarily suited to eldership.
Elders need to also be suited to oversee the ministry of the church. The term episcopos means overseer, and this describes the work of elders. They manage the operation of ministries in Dwell, the flow of funds, and our doctrinal position. Elders organize and direct the church’s structures.
