The leadership of the local church is described in the New Testament using the words Presbuteros (usually translated as Elder), Episkopos (translated as Overseer) and Shepherds. The Coign Church models this leadership through the eldership who are the decision-making body of the church responsible for setting the doctrines and practices of the church and deciding the strategy of the church.

The elders delegate responsibilities to a large number of leaders of neighbourhood groups and other ministries.
