Redemption Church Christchurch is an independent, non-denominational fellowship of believers which is locally governed by the Holy Spirit through the two main offices of leadership for the local church which God prescribes in His Word – elders and deacons.
An elder is a God-appointed spiritual leader who has been called to protect, feed, lead, and care for the flock of God (Acts 20:26-31; 1 Timothy 3:2; 5:17; James 5:14). In our fellowship, we use the term “elder” interchangeably with “pastor” or “pastor-elder”.
A deacon is a God-appointed spiritual leader who has been called to oversee the practical needs within the local church (Acts 6:1-7).
Both of these offices of church leadership require that men are Biblically qualified (1 Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:6-9; 1 Peter 5:1-3).
The following are a list of men who currently serve as pastor-elders and deacons at Redemption Church Christchurch.
