Who are they? (1 Timothy 3:1-7)

1Here is a trustworthy saying: Whoever aspires to be an overseer desires a noble task. 
2 Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 
3 not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. 
4 He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full[a] respect. 
5 (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?) 
6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. 
7 He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap.

What they do? (1 Peter 5:1-2)
To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder and a witness of Christ’s sufferings who also will share in the glory to be revealed: 
2 Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve;

Govern Shepherd Teach

How they do it? (1 Peter 5:2-5)
