The church government of Redeemer can best be described as congregational in nature and led by a plurality of elders. The basic leadership of the church is made up of elders, deacons and staff.
The elders serve the church by giving spiritual oversight and direction to the church. The scope of responsibility of the elders includes church doctrine, the vision and mission of the church, oversight of churches ministries, accountability for all church leadership, shepherding the congregation through prayer and the ministry of the word, and major decisions effecting the life of the church. The biblical basis and criteria for selection of elders is I Timothy 3 and Titus 1.
