Harpeth Hills is led by a group of elders. These men provide overall direction for the congregation. They make big decisions while delegating many others to the ministers and staff. We often refer to our elders as shepherds because their primary goal is to watch over the flock. Our elders provide pastoral care, visit funeral homes and hospitals, and frequently pray with people in need. These men truly care about the wellbeing of every member at Harpeth Hills.
