Through the Bible (1 Peter 5)
16 January 2013
1 Peter 5
Peter writes to exhort the elders in feeding the flock. Learn a brief outline of church leadership as we study the roles of elders, bishops and pastors. Recognize what Biblical leadership looks like and how it applies to our walk with Jesus. Here we are called to submit to our elders and be subject one to another, humble. Consider what it means to be a feeder of the flock and the non-fading reward therein. It is in grace we stand, God’s riches at Christ’s expense.
Brett is our senior pastor. He and his family moved to Portland in 1996 to start Athey Creek Christian Fellowship. As our church has grown, Brett’s main focus has remained the same: pointing people to Jesus by teaching through God’s Word, verse-by-verse, book-by-book and chapter-by-chapter. Brett and his wife, Debbie, have three children: Brooke, Joey and Casey.
