The Grand Junction Church of Christ is governed by a plurality of elders. We believe this aligns with the New Testament instructions regarding church leadership – that the church be led by a plurality of qualified leaders. The Bible instructs the elders to oversee the church and care for the member’s spiritually. The elders are accountable for the overall health and effectiveness of the church. Ultimately, Jesus Christ is the head of the church, so the elders’ role is to seek His direction in overseeing, guiding, and caring for the church.
