In many ways the role of leadership in the church is like that of a Sherpa on Mt. Everest. Basically the role of the Sherpa is to be a servant to the “expedition climbers” who are seeking to  summit the mountain. Specifically it is their unique calling to determine the best possible route to the top of Everest, and then to fix ropes, ladders, and high altitude camps along the way to ensure the expedition climbers the best possible opportunity to summit the mountain. Once on the mountain

the Sherpa’s role is to instruct, equip and support the climbers as they ascend to greater altitudes.

 

The Biblical role of pastors and elders is very similar. It is to serve the congregation by seeking God’s direction for the future, and by coming alongside of them to instruct, equip, and encourage them in their journey of faith. At EVAC we are incredibly blessed to have the following individuals currently serving as EVAC’s “sherpas!”
