Other than reference of the identity of some of the elders (i.e. 2 John 1), you read of churches having elders (plural) not merely an elder. (See Acts 11:30; 14:23; 15:2, 4, 22, 23; 16:4; 20:17, 28; 21:18; Phil. 1:1; 1 Tim. 5:17; Titus 1:5; James 5:14; 1 Pet. 5:1-2.) Reference to individual elders does not mean they served alone.

"I Didn't Build It for Me" described a real-life incident where a televangelist used his followers' donations to build an obscenely lavish ministry headquarters—then tried to claim that it was really for the use of all Christians, and besides, God told him to build it.
