“As a fellow elder, I appeal to you: Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you. Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly—not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God.”
1 Peter 5:2
The elders at Common Ground Midtown shepherd the people, vision, finances and partnerships of the church. Collectively, the elders carry the responsibility and authority of the church, and steward the spiritual, relational, and financial health of the church body. They pursue God’s will for the church through a Spirit-led process of discernment and through consensus decision making.
They delegate leadership to staff and ministry teams to carry out ministry initiatives and work closely with staff and those teams to ensure unity in vision and mission. Ultimately, the eldership strives to be faithful in carrying out the mission we believe God has for our church: To call people of all ages to be formed into the image of Jesus so that we can love our neighbors in Indianapolis and around the world.
