Redeemer holds the biblical conviction that the local church is to be led by a plurality of men.  As this church plant begins, we are making the best efforts we can to have plurality until we can raise up new pastors from within.   Thus, at the beginning, we are going to be using the language of an "executive" elder board that is external to Redeemer of Point Pleasant. These elders are the elders of our mother church in Toms River. This will be a temporary measure.
