Pastors Q&A Ep.4: Biblical Eldership

Listen on Apple Podcasts This week pastors Matt, Brad, and Dave answer the question: “What is a pastor and elder, and how do you become one?“ What do we mean when we say a man is an elder? What is the role of a pastor? How are they different, and how are they related? How do we do pastoring and “eldering” at Stonebrook?

Announcements for the Week of April 11

Thank You from Obria and Martha’s House of Hope – Thank you to all those who donated to the Obria and Martha’s House of Hope collection this Easter season!  The Lord had to have orchestrated every donation because the variety and amounts of each item could not have been more perfectly selected!  May these gifts bless both the parents and the children who receive them and may the work of Obria and Martha’s House continue to shine for our Lord, Jesus! Thank you,…
