Bridge City Church will be an elder led church. We view the role of elder and the role of pastor as one and the same. Therefore, those noted as "Pastors" are "Elders." In the future, we will be adding more elders/pastors, as potential elders work through the elder training process. In the early stages of church life, Justin will serve in multiple capacities as the churches only elder. As the church grows, the elders will work together to steward the church body in all areas.

For the qualifications of elders see: 1 Timothy 3:1-7, 5:17; Titus 1:5-9, 1 Pet. 5:1-4; Acts 20:17-35.
