THE ELDERS

"I exhort the elders who are among you ... feed the flock of God among you, taking the oversight, not by compulsion, but willingly; nor for base gain, but readily; nor as lording it over those allotted to you by God, but becoming examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd shall appear, you shall receive a never-fading crown of gloryā€¯ 

(1 Peter 5:1-4).
