Allisonville Elders

what's an elder?

The elders of Allisonville Christian Church serve as spiritual leaders of the congregation. The church calls them to serve in this capacity because of their demonstrated leadership and spiritual maturity.


Elders serve three-year terms. Their duties include presiding at the Communion Table with the ministers each Sunday to offer invitations to give to the offering and to partake of the Lord’s Supper. They pray at the table as well.


The congregation is divided into a number of care circles, and elders relate to the families in these circles. 


The Ministers of the congregation rely on the elders to share important issues that happen in the congregation. Often they study together to become better informed in their conversations.
