Jesus is the head of the church.
Apostles and Prophets regularly help lay solid foundations to ensure we stay on course.
The elders (“pastors”) are appointed by God to shepherd and lead the church. The elders/pastors represent the primary leadership and meet regularly to discuss the doctrine and direction of the Church, as well as pastoral situations. The elders/pastors endeavour to preach, teach, and counsel for the glory of God.
