He builds around men

If elders/shepherds/pastors (plural) are the teachers and overseers of the local church in the New Testament (which they are) then it makes sense that God will cause His people to recognize, acknowledge and feed from their ministry (in plural).

 

In other words, seek out such groups, where there are plural elders (not one leader) and where you are really benefited by their Biblical teaching, counsel and prayer.

If we seek out such men then we are actively participating in God’s plan for his church.

In other words, God does indeed build His church around men, in Christ, He builds no other way.
