RBC is an elder-led church. Our council of elders are responsible for the care, oversight, leadership, and shepherding of the spiritual condition and fiscal well-being of the church. These are men who have been examined and meet the biblical qualifications as set forth in 1 Timothy 5:17, Titus 1:9, 1 Peter 5:1-3, Acts 20:28, and Mark 10:42-45. Along with our pastors, deacons and staff, they serve, lead, pray for, and minister to our congregation in word and in deed.
After a long period of examination and feedback, we were pleased to recognize three new elders during our time of worship last weekend: Dan Lowen, Ed Lee and Jason VanDorsten. Pray for these men as they join our existing elders in caring for our church. Click here to “meet” our elders and read bios on each of them.
For an overseer, as God’s steward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain, but hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined. He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sounddoctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it. – Titus 1:7-9
