Since Jesus' disciples planted the very first churches, elders have been appointed in local congregations to oversee and teach believers (Acts 14:23, 20:17).
New Life Church follows the same example and is led by several biblically-qualified men to oversee the our church congregation. All of our elders, apart from our Pastor, hold their position on an unpaid basis and are professionals in various fields in the Abu Dhabi community.
It is our desire to have church leaders that meet the qualifications of 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1, as they strive to lead New Life Church through example, preaching, teaching, discipling and counseling. Our elders meet regularly to pray and and seek the Lord's counsel in discerning the direction and governance of our church.
