Paul and Barnabas appointed elders for them in each church and, with prayer and fasting, committed them to the Lord, in whom they had put their trust.
-Acts 14:23

Governance Model

Northeast is fortunate to have a strong staff, including a leadership team and Lead Pastor that actively govern Northeast operations. The Elder team functions as the final layer of governance which establishes policy, conducts the ministry of prayer, practices the ministry of the word, and performs oversight of pastoral matters.  Through governance, the Elders at Northeast are unified to provide strategic direction and to hold the Lead Pastor accountable for the health and wellness of every aspect of Northeast.

“Now the overseer must be above reproach,…”   Acts 3:2-13

“Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good….”  1 Corinthians 12:7-11

Elders Team

  • Humble Spirit (Isaiah 66:2)
  • Strong Biblical Knowledge (Psalms 119:66)
  • Commitment to Tithe and to Teaching God’s Word (Leviticus 27:30)
