At Kinney, we believe Scripture teaches every local church should, ideally, have a plurality of pastors (also called "elders," "overseers," or "bishops" in the New Testament). Some will serve as pastors for their full-time job (commonly called "vocational pastors/elders"), while others have another full-time job (commonly called "lay pastors/elders"). At this time, Kinney has only one pastor, but in the future, as the Lord sees fit to raise up such men, our church will be led by a plurality of qualified men to serve as pastors/elders, both vocational and lay.
