Key Truth: Healthy pastors provide an atmosphere of spiritual health in their congregation.

1 Timothy 3:1-7:

Here is a trustworthy saying: If anyone sets his heart on being an overseer, he desires a noble task. Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money.


He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him with proper respect. (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?) He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap.”


The Role of a Pastor

Paul sent to Ephesus for the ELDERS (presbuteros) of the church... “Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you OVERSEERS (episkopos – often translated “bishops”). Be SHEPHERDS (poimaino – often translated “pastors”) of the church of God.”

Acts 20:17, 28


1. Elders– Lead with God’s WISDOM

2. Overseers – Lead with God’s AUTHORITY

3. Pastors – Lead with God’s COMPASSION

And David shepherded them with integrity of heart; with skillful hands he led them.

Psalm 78:72
