Elders providing strategic oversight and shepherding care for the church in a variety of ways including teaching, preaching, evangelism, prayer, personal care, leadership development, oversight, and strategic planning. Whether they are full-time staff of the church or employed in a regular vocation, the direction and initiatives of Bayless Baptist Church flow out of the leadership of these men.
Bayless Baptist staff members carry out the daily work of the local church, according to the direction provided by the elders. While roles and responsibilities vary, the men and women of the staff work together as a team to lead and shepherd the people of Bayless Baptist Church.

Bayless Baptist deacons serve by helping to direct and coordinate various ministries in the church. These individuals work together and with different staff members to be a visible demonstration of the gospel through faithful service throughout the church and city.
In this season of revitalization, the congregation of Bayless Baptist has temporarily entrusted oversight and direction of the church to the Replant Team, working in conjunction with Pastor Evan Skelton. This team is composed of pastors of healthy churches around St. Louis as well as members within the congregation, and as Bayless grows to once again be self-governing and self-sustaining, these members will be replaced with pastor-elders from within the congregation.
