Elder, Overseer, Pastor – Which Title Should We Use?



It has commonly been held that the two terms, elder and overseer, refer to one and the same office within the messianic communities of the Apostolic era. In this short session, Tim Hegg looks at these two titles in context and then he looks at ‘pastor,’ another term that is popular today. He sums up the discussion with a suggestion of which term we should use today and why.

This audio discussion covers a portion of an “Excursus on Elders, Overseers, & Deacons” by Tim Hegg from the in-depth study, “I Will Build My Ekklesia : An Introduction to Ecclesiology” (p. 78). For more information about this product, Click Here.
