One of the most interesting (and potentially divisive) subjects to study in theology is the topic of church government. Over the last twenty centuries, Christians have developed several forms of church leadership. The Episcopal Form relies on a distinct organization which includes bishops and other titled clergy while the Presbyterian Form relies on a hierarchy of elders, with a “session” of laymen governing local congregations and a “presbytery” leading groups of churches in a region, while a “general assembly” operates at the national level. The Congregational Form consists of mostly autonomous local churches operating under the authority of a pastor or group of pastors, sometimes with elders and deacons contributing to leadership. Although the Bible does not prescribe any single type of church government, each of these forms has, at the very least, implied examples in Scripture and a long tradition within the history of God’s people. Often, in fact, many churches and denominations (or even non-denominations) operate with a hybrid model in order to try to most effectively minister to the people of that particular congregation.
