Each New Day Elder is an overseer of specific worshippers and has Deacons that are available to help and walk alongside their flock. Elder Tom Thrasher and his Deacons John Jacobsen, Kim Senger, and Vladislav Zinchenko oversee New Day members whose last names begin with SD through Z.

1 Peter 5:2 says, “Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, serving as overseers”.
