The elders responsibility is for the spiritual welfare and growth in the church.
The leaders in Emmanuel are called Elders after the pattern of the early church. The elders responsibility is for the spiritual welfare and growth in the church. Here the idea of family is adopted in scripture so the elders could be called the mums and dads in the house and are responsible for ensuring that the people in their care grow to maturity and fulfill their full potential in Jesus.
They set the path and course of the family and establish an Ethos and DNA which supports the growth to maturity in the family.
Emmanuel has a governmental relationship with Jubilee Church Maidstone, who provide the Apostolic oversight to Emmanuel and the required accountability to the Elders of Emmanuel. Jubilee Church, Maidstone also have a role in the selection and appointment of Elders.
