Leadership

“I am the Good Shepherd, the Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.” – Jesus

At RHC, we believe the Senior Pastor of the local church is Jesus. Under Jesus the church is led and shepherded by a plurality of called and qualified men, known as elders. We do not believe in one man running the show or calling all the shots. The New Testament is clear that churches should appoint “elders” for the good and health of the local church (Titus 1:5).

There is wisdom in a multitude of counselors, so at RHC we seek by God’s grace to appoint men who love Jesus, love His Word, love His people and who love and shepherd others in a way that reflects Him.
