Elders

Written by Admin on . Posted in Elders

Messiah Yeshua is the Head of Rosh Pinah Synagogue.  There are two Biblically recognized offices that are appointed by Him to provide spiritual oversight and leadership to Rosh Pinah.  Those offices are Elders and Shamashim.  Rosh Pinah's government consists of an Elder Board as the oversight and decision making body in our congregation.  The Elder Board makes the decisions, implements policy, and oversees the finances at Rosh Pinah.  Our founding elders (Z”l) established this government because it was the closest to the Biblical model (Titus 1:5-9).  The elders must follow the character qualities outlined in the Scriptures and have received their appointment as Elders through the laying on of hands from current elders.

Shamashim

Written by Admin on . Posted in Shamashim

Elders teach or preach the Word and shepherd the souls of those under their care (Eph. 4:11; 1 Tim. 3:2; 5:17; Titus 1:9; Heb. 13:17).  Shamashim (Deacons), too, have a crucial role in the life and the health of Rosh Pinah, but their role is different from the elders’.  The biblical role of shamashim is to take care of the physical and logistical needs of Rosh Pinah, so that the elders can concentrate on their primary calling.

Department Leaders

There are additional leadership positions that are important, even necessary at Rosh Pinah, but are not recognized offices as identified by the Scriptures.  These Department Leaders/Overseers provide vital leadership and oversight in specific areas of ministry.
