Our Elders serve to shepherd and give oversight to the people of Fellowship Baptist Church. They strive to fulfill their role as described in I Peter 5:2-3: "shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock."
