Here at the Crandall Church of Christ, we are fortunate to have elders who oversee our congregation as “Spiritual Shepherds” authorized by the Word of God. Elders have the responsibility of leading and guiding the local congregation, overseeing the work of the church in the biblical pattern as set forth by the Holy Scripture. They are responsible solely for our local congregation only and are not governed or guided by any man-made association, convention, church, or other congregation or non-biblical earthly authority. Our elders encourage, lead, and support our members and likewise, we support the eldership through submission to God’s Word in cooperation with their leadership of the church body.
We thank these good men for their service and dedication to our congregation.
I Timothy 3:1 It is a trustworthy statement: if any man aspires to the office of overseer, it is a fine work he desires to do.
The Crandall congregation is also blessed to have Deacons to serve in accordance with biblical authority. Just as the elders are dedicated to serving as our spiritual shepherds, our Deacons are special servants selected to serve as physical shepherds dedicated to supporting the physical work of the church at the direction of the elders.
We also thank these good men for their service and dedication to our congregation and supporting our Elders.
