Olivet is a Christ-ruled, pastor/elder-led, staff-run, deacon-served, congregationally-governed body of believers.
Following the pattern of the New Testament, we use the terms pastor and elder interchangeably (Acts 20:17, 28; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-4). Our pastors/elders are the under-shepherds who serve the Chief Shepherd (i.e. Jesus) by leading and caring for the flock of Olivet Baptist Church. Our pastors/elders are accountable to the church as a whole.
Currently, we have two staff pastors/elders and four non-staff pastors/elders.
