Our Elders

The West Allen church is a self-governing body of Christians, organized according to the New Testament pattern of elders, deacons and saints (Philippians 1:1).

Three men serve the West Allen church as elders.  They are all mature Christians, and serve in the office of elder by reason of meeting the qualifications listed in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9.   Their duty is to watch out for the souls of the West Allen saints (Hebrews 13:17), thus the New Testament also refers to them as bishops (one who oversees) and pastors (one who shepherds God's flock).

elders: Joe Christian, Rod Himes, Jerry King
