Each New Day Elder is an overseer of specific worshippers and has Deacons that are available to help and walk alongside their flock. Elder Roger Rives and his Deacons Tom Black and Victor Costello oversee New Day members whose last names begin with CP through G.
1 Peter 5:2 says, “Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, serving as overseers”.
