Leadership

Covenant Shreveport is led by a plurality of pastor/elders who each operate within their individual gifting to give leadership to an area of focus within the church. These leaders operate as peers within the organizational structure embracing a horizontal or “out front” leadership model rather than a “top down” model. As such, Covenant does not have a singular “Senior Pastor” or “Lead Pastor,” but, instead, a pastoral team that leads and teaches.
This model is based on the New Testament example of eldership (Acts 14:23; 15:2; 20:17; Philippians 1:1; Titus 1:5; James 1:1; 5:14; 1 Peter 1:1; 5:1). These men were to look after the Church’s health, govern the Church’s direction, teach the Church sound doctrine, defend the Church against false teachers, encourage faithfulness among God’s people, and confront and gently deal with the presence of sin in the faith community. The qualifications for these men as laid out in Scripture are very clear and very demanding (1 Timothy 2:11-3:7; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-3). They are to be devout, prayerful, men of integrity who have known Christ for some time, are above reproach, sexually pure, self-controlled, able to teach and defend sound doctrine, free from the love of money, good managers of their own homes and families, hospitable, and having a good reputation with people outside the church.
