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.
