Acts 20:17 New International Version

Paul's Address to the Ephesian Elders

17 From Miletus, Paul sent to Ephesus for the elders of the church.

Titus 1:5-7 New International Version

Qualifications of Elders and Bishops

5 The reason I left you in Crete was that you might put in order what was left unfinished and appoint[1] elders in every town, as I directed you.

6 An elder must be blameless, faithful to his wife, a man whose children believe[2] and are not open to the charge of being wild and disobedient. 7 Since an overseer manages God's household, he must be blameless-not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain.
