So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed: shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory - Apostle Peter - 1 Peter 5: 1-4
We believe that being an Elder is a God-ordained office of the Church and being a Pastor is a gift to the church. Reference Ephesians 4: 7-16
An Elder in essence is a Pastor/Shepherd but a Pastor does not necessarily carry the office of an Elder
