I realize that the majority of churches, Baptist and others, utilize the government model of a one-man rule. That is, one spiritual leader over a group, whether large or small. One pastor (one elder). I have studied church government in the New Testament writings, and find that there is not much, if any, support for this one-man rule. Elders are plural when mentioned. It also seems that if there were multiple spiritual leaders in a group, it would take away the tendency of some to want to lord over. But, the main question is: What support do you find in the New Testament writings for one-man rule in the local church?
