Our Shepherds

Our Shepherds

So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed: shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock. (1 Peter 5:1–3, ESV)

Shepherds (also known as pastors, bishops, overseers, and elders) watch over the local church. Peter describes elders as men who willingly lead the flock in a loving and gentle way—specifically through their example. The Chelsea congregation is blessed with five godly men who serve in this capacity.  They are Darrell Baker, Joe Smith, Dave Long, Chris Baker and Scott Vinsant.
