Overseers Tribe

“Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, serving as overseers – not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.” 1 Peter 5.2-3

“Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.” Acts 20:28

Public Speaker

In the Old Testament, the term elder is applied to various offices from the heads of tribes, clans and families proceeded the elders, who, even before the time of Moses, formed the superiors of the people.  In the New Testament they were associated sometimes with the chief priests (Matthew 21:23), sometimes with the chief priests and scribes (Matthew 16:21), or the council (Matthew 26:59), always taking an active part in the management of public affairs. The “elders” of the NT church were the “pastors” (Ephesians 4:11), “overseers” (Acts 20:28; etc.), the leaders who “have charge” (Hebrews 13:7; 1 Thessalonians 5:12; etc.) of the flock. The Overseers Tribe serves as the administration for all that we do.  It directs, supervises, and encourages the staff and residents, handles all the record keeping, financial business, legal needs, and the personnel needs of those who live and work here. Handling administrative responsibilities for the facility includes supervision of the eleven other Tribes, always mindful of the fact that Jesus is the Chairman of the Board, and that He is watching us.

Hebrews tells us that in a world that is shaking apart, believers in Jesus Christ have the privilege of sharing the best news imaginable:  there is something that is stable, something that is completely secure.  There is a rock on which we are able to stand, and it cannot be shaken.  That unshakeable foundation, of course, is Almighty God.  The Lord gives us other immovable truths as well.  We can trust that Scripture is His unchanging, always relevant truth for all time.  We can depend on a secure, eternal relationship with Him through His Son.  And we can be sure that a heavenly home awaits all those who place their faith in Jesus.  We can have stability, even in this unstable world.
