Grace Fellowship Church is ruled by a group of spiritually mature men that the New Testament calls elders. They are responsible for the ultimate oversight and direction of the church. They are to lead by example, to pray, to ensure the spiritual health of the church, and to create an environment in which our vision can be fulfilled. The Elder Board is the governing body of the church, made up of laymen and our Lead Pastor.

The qualifications for elders are found in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1. The congregation nominates and confirms all new elders.
