Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
Ephesians 4:11-14
The leadership structure at Barrs Mill Church of God is divided between two boards (Elders and Deacons). The Elders work hand-in-hand with the Senior Pastor. Together they address spiritual issues that may affect the church. They also help the Senior Pastor accomplish future visionary goals and objectives. The Deacons handle issues that pertain to the building and church grounds. Work that involves simple repair or large construction projects are headed up by the Deacon board.

Both boards know and understand the importance of allowing the Lord to guide and direct them as they make decisions for the church. Thus, prayer and discernment are greatly sought after when discussing each and every matter!

Both boards are made up of individuals that come from all walks of life and each member brings a diverse set of God-given gifts and talents. All members understand that their work and effort, helps to build a foundation that will bring others to know Christ.
