Harvest Fayetteville is an elder-led church. This is a form of church government, whereby our local church is ordered and managed by a group of Harvest Fayetteville members, who have devoted themselves and their families to God, who seek the good of Harvest Fayetteville, and through it our city and world.
Elders are appointed, and God has given them the responsiblity of watching over the affairs of the church. Their primary functions are to oversee the Doctrine, Discipline, and Direction of Harvest Fayetteville.
We say that elders are two things at Harvest Fayetteville: 1) on their knees before God, and 2) in authority before the church.
The biblical texts discussing elders can be found in 1 Timothy 3:1-7, and Titus 1:5-9.
