The risen Christ shepherds his people by gifting churches with godly men to serve as elders (also called pastors or overseers - Eph. 4:11-12, 1 Tim. 3:1-7, 5:17, Titus 1:5-9, Acts 14:21-23, 20:28). These men are called to shepherd Christ’s flock through the ministry of the Word, prayer, and pastoral care (1 Pet. 5:1-5, Heb. 13:7, 17, 1 Tim. 5:17; cf. Acts 6:4). Here are the elders Christ has given to Christ Fellowship at this time:
Keith Christensen - Elder / Preaching Pastor
Keith was raised in the Hill Country of central Texas. He became a Christian while attending Texas A & M University, where he also met his wonderful wife, Katie. After receiving training at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY, Keith worked as an associate pastor at Calvary Bible Church in Fort Worth for 5 years. Calvary sent Keith out to plant Christ Fellowship in 2020. The Lord has blessed Keith and Katie with five children.
Matt Scheffler - Elder
