Eldership is a ministry of pastoral care which involves shepherding the flock of God. This shepherding is done as elders spend time in prayer seeking to know what the Father would have them say to his people and then visiting those entrusted to their care bringing words of life. [Acts 6:4] As Jesus said to Peter, “feed my lambs…, tend my sheep…, feed my sheep.” [John 21: 15-17] so Peter exhorts  elders  to “Shepherd the flock of God” [1 Peter 5:1-5]
