Sun Valley Bible Chapel embraces plurality of leadership (Acts 14:23, 15:2, 15:6, 15:23, 20:17; Philippians 1:1). Elders serve in a pastoral role, as gifted to do so. There are always a plurality of elders in the New Testament Church: always more than one overseer; always more than one shepherd.

Elders are also referred to in the scriptures as "bishops" and "overseers." Elders are referenced throughout the New Testament (Acts 11:30, 20:28, 21:18; 1 Peter 5:1-2, 1 Timothy 5:17, Titus 1:5, James 5:14)
Scripture requires that elders are to meet the biblical qualifications found in 1 Timothy 3:1–7 and Titus 1:6–9.
