"For an overseer, as God's steward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain, but hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined.

He must hold firm to the trustworthy Word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in

sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it."

Titus 1:7-9
