Following biblical teaching, the Rogersville church of Christ looks to Jesus
Christ as its head. Since Christ is the Head and Leads Our Church, why do we have Elders? Because
everything that we do must meet His approval through His Holy Scriptures. This includes the way we
organize our leadership and as pointed out in Titus 1:5,
we are directed to appoint Elders.
To facilitate the work of the church and accomplish our mission, we must depend upon the efforts of individual Christians who serve in various ways. Members of the Rogersville church of Christ have appointed the following men who we believe fit the qualifications outlined in Titus 1:6-9, to be our Elders (or "shepherds"). As such, they oversee the spirituality of the congregation. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful group of men with whom we entrust the direction, the care, and the growth of our church family.

Since the Rogersville church of Christ looks to Jesus Christ as its head
and Elders have been appointed, why do we have Deacons? The Greek word (diakonos) translated "deacon" means
servant, and is so translated in Matthew 23:11
and John 12:26. It can be said
then that a Deacon is someone who is chosen to assist the elders of a congregation in carrying out their
responsibilities as 1 Peter 5:2.
While the Elders oversee the spirituality of the congregation, Deacons are responsible for seeing to the daily needs of our church and our community. Members of the Rogersville church of Christ have the following men who we believe fit the qualifications outlined in I Timothy 3:8-13, to be our Deacons.
