"The biblical model of leadership is probably best characterized in the phrase “servant leader.” Just as Christ didn’t come to be served, but to serve (Matthew 20:28), the role of the elders is to be servant leaders as they oversee and shepherd. A ruling elder is a member who has been elected by the other Redeemer members. The qualifications and motivations for the office are described in 1 Peter 5:2-3, 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:6-9."
