Pastoral Leadership

At South City Church, we believe the Bible sets a precedent for church's to follow in how they are lead. Ultimately South City is lead by Christ since all those who have come to faith in Him, belong to Him.  As we attempt to be Biblical in how we lead each other, we see a clear pattern in Scripture of a plurality of leaders.  In other words, there is not just one pastor/elder but many, all equal in their leadership but often distinct in their function.  This precedent is an acknowledgement that spiritually shepherding a church should not and cannot be accomplished by just one man.  For a more robust explanation of what we believe the Bible says about pastoral leadership and how we are to lead, see our statement on Eldership in our Church Constitution and By-Laws.
