Fellowship Church Lubbock is an elder-led church.
We believe that the New Testament is clear in it’s establishment of a plurality of equally qualified elders as the principal leadership of the local church. There is no distinction between “pastors” and “elders” in scripture. Elders are pastors, and pastors are elders. There might be one pastor of Fellowship Church Lubbock that preaches most often, or has more evident duties, but one elder does not operate as the “CEO” of the church – rather, he is one of a team of “equals”; all elders share the leadership responsibilities of teaching, preaching God’s Word, prayer, and shepherding the local congregation.
