The local church, as described in the New Testament, was always led by a team of elders (also known as pastors, overseers, or shepherds). Restore functions in the same way, with a team of pastors who work together to lead the church. Each pastor has a different role, but they all work together as one team. Restore looks to add pastors from within the body as the church continues to grow.

This structure provides accountability, protection, shared burden, and shared teaching responsibilities, among other things. Key Scriptures regarding eldership include 1 Timothy 3:1-7, 5:17; Titus 3:5-9; Acts 14:23, 20:17, 20:28; Hebrews 13:17; James 5:14; 1 Peter 5:1-3.

As the wisest man who ever lived once wrote:
“Two people can accomplish more than twice as much as one; they get a better return for their labor. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But people who are alone when they fall are in real trouble. A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.” – Ecclesiastes 4:9-10,12
