About-

There is a great deal of confusion and ignorance in the church today concerning the office of Elder. What exactly is his role? What does the Bible prescribe for it? How can the elder live up to his leadership potential?

The study of this subject is not only challenging but exciting, and spiritually rewarding as well. This text is provided as a needed tool to stimulate and support an interactive study by pastors and lay leaders.

Suggested settings for its use might include:

Group study

Periodic workshops

Retreat settings

Personal study

Board meetings

Understanding the role and potential of eldership, and applying these principles faithfully, will greatly enhance the ministry effectiveness of pastor and elder alike. Pastors will find the author’s companion volume, Preaching That Connects, helpful when using this book.
