At Kinney, we believe Scripture teaches every local church should, ideally, have a plurality of pastors (also called "elders" or "overseers" 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"). As the Lord sees fit to raise up such men, we desire for our church to be led by a plurality of pastors/elders, both vocational and lay.
