The Biblical teaching on leadership identifies two church offices - Elder & Deacon. This teaching is found in I Timothy 3:1-16 and Titus 1:5-9. Though there are three terms used for the offices of the church, i.e. bishop, elder, and deacon, a careful analysis of these terms indicates that bishop and elder are used interchangeably, with the bishop simply being the 'ruling' or leading elder. The qualifications for both Elders and Deacons are the same in character but different in aptitude. Elders focus on spiritual leadership and oversight, Deacons (Ministry Leaders) focus on ministry oversight and service.
