The elders of Vision Church have 4 primary expectations when they serve in this role:
1. They serve as "protectors" of (in this order): The mission of Jesus Christ, Vision Church, our Pastors and their families
2. They listen to the "pulse" of the church. They are a valuable part of keeping our Pastors and other leaders at Vision in tune with the current condition of people at Vision Church.
3. They are the "rails" that keep our Pastors and the church on track towards the vision that God has for this specific body of Christ.
4. They are volunteers in "the trenches". An elder does not have a position of power, but is a man who willingly serves other people inside Vision and in the community.
Vision Church is a staff-led church, founded by Lead Pastor Matt Vanderbilt. He empowers volunteers to carry out the mission of the church--in fact, every other position at Vision Church is carried out by volunteers except for our Lead & Associate Pastor positions.
