The Elders are accountable in three ways. First, they are accountable personally like every other member of our Church. Second, they are accountable to their fellow Elders of Grace Fellowship. Third, as a group, the Elders are accountable according to our church By-Laws which state that any ten members who feel the Elders are violating a Biblical mandate can initiate a meeting with the Elder Leadership Team. If this meeting does not bring restoration, then these ten members can call for a church-wide meeting in accordance with special meeting guidelines set up in the church’s By-Laws to address their concerns. We hope to never see this happen, but it does create accountability at the “highest” level of authority within Grace Fellowship to provoke healthy, God-centered leadership.
