How Will Your Elders Care for Me?
We want to welcome you to Pepper Road! We're very excited that you have chosen to visit with us today.
We are honored to serve as elders, as shepherds, and as pastors. Our responsibility and privilege is to watch out for the souls of the members at Pepper Road by ensuring that we are focused on doing God's will as expressed through the Bible (Acts 20:28; 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13; Hebrews 13:17; 1 Peter 5:1-4; 1 John 3:16).
If your desire is to spend eternity with God, and if you are willing to follow God's Word, the Bible, then we would love to speak with you about joining the Lord’s church that meets here at Pepper Road.
As one of the elders serving at Pepper Road, I have served with several qualified and dedicated men who have shared their knowledge, leadership abilities, love for souls, and love for the truth of the gospel. As shepherds we are charged by God to oversee His flock, to feed, protect, and admonish those who have been entrusted to our care. The Lord has taught us that we can have no greater love than to lay down our lives for the brethren. As elders we have not obtained to a position, but we have accepted a work that has great rewards and one that challenges us to be good examples, dedicated servants, and loving shepherds whose every action is predicated by a love for doing the will of God.
As one of the elders of the Pepper Road church, my main goal is to help all of us get to heaven. I do my best to work with the other elders to make sure scriptural teaching is in place in the classrooms and the pulpit. At Pepper Road, we are a family seeking to help and to be an encouragement to everyone as they labor for the Lord. Please feel free to contact myself or one of the elders if you need further information about the work here at Pepper Road.
The most important task we have as overseers is working to save souls and helping people get to heaven. The work of elders is to shepherd the Lord’s flock, which includes feeding and guarding the souls that are part of the Pepper Road family. As elders, our greatest joy comes from seeing people grow in the Lord, which sometimes includes overcoming difficulties and struggles that are testing them. It is our responsibility to walk only in the path that Christ has given us, and thus our teaching and preaching will be filled with God’s Word. As elders our doors are always open to discuss the Lord’s work. If you are interested in a congregation, where the elders’ primary goal is helping you get to heaven, please bring your questions and come talk to us.
