​Established in the first century Church:  “For this cause I left thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee.”  ​Titus 1:5
God set in order the local autonomy of each congregation for church government.  The elders’ outreach is to its own congregation.  “And from Melitus he sent to Ephesus, and called the elders of the church.”  Acts 10:17
 “Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church  of God, which he hath purchased with His own blood.”  Acts 10:28
 Qualifications for Elders are set forth in 1 Timothy 3:1-7
