What is their role?

The congregation itself routinely selects a group of men to serve as leaders, 
and in understanding what this call to leadership means, the shepherd metaphor
is particularly instructive. This group could also be called the congregation's 
pastors or bishops, but shepherds or elders are the terms used most often. 
Instead of serving as a corporate board of directors, the shepherds are called 
to feed [teach] and protect the congregation. The shepherds' emphasis is on 
people, not programs - their unique ministry carries with it a responsibility 
for the souls of the congregation.
