1) Senior Pastor Led (Sole Proprietor, e.g. Most Baptist, Calvary Chapels)

2) Presbytery Led (Franchise Store – Individually-owned and operated, e.g., Bel Air Presbyterian)

3) Congregational Led (Employee Owned, e.g. Lake Ave Congregational Church)

5) The Plurality of Elders Led (Senior Partnership, many independent-Bible churches)
