Pastor/Elder

At Gatlin Baptist Church we understand the Bible to clearly teach that there are two distinct offices in the church, being Elder/Pastor and Deacon. Both of these office are vitally important to the health of the body. If you aspire to serve the Lord and His bride as an Elder at Gatlin we would encourage you pray through your calling, get connected, begin serving, let your aspirations be known to one of the Elders/Pastors, and submit to a discipleship relationship with one of our Elders/Pastors. It would also be advantageous to read through the following articles to get a glimpse of how we see the office as best exercised to the praise of His glory!
