Meaning of Elders

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY THE TERM ELDERS? By Pastor Moses Simiyu

Elders are gifted individuals who are highly esteemed, respected and who are looked to for wisdom, for embodying and articulating with passion the values, vision, mission and faith that ICCE holds dearly. We expect Elders to offer spiritual, pastoral and organisational leadership and council. Elders are also a symbol; of the unity in diversity ICCE. As the Council of Elders they form a kind of collegiums of support to the body of Christ.

Elders also embody the continuity of the founding narrative of ICCE. Connecting generations of servant leadership.

ELDERS must be those individuals of obvious quality and leadership, who are mature, have sound judgement, have a proven record of accomplishment as ministers and have successful experience in envisioning and strategic planning for the future.

Elders must be excellent communicators, skilled motivators and teachers, self-motivated and devoted to continuous learning. Elders must be capable of understanding and working within sound fiscal guidelines, be sensitive to cultural differences and be able and willing to embrace diversity. It is desirable that the council of Elders reflect the diversity of the fellowship.
