Local Church Leadership: Elders

People have developed many ideas about leadership. But when we speak of the church – Jesus has given us a very clear picture of what leadership is supposed to look like within the local congregation. A plurality of Elders are responsible to give care, teach, oversee and serve the local congregation. In this sermon we are going to look to see what scripture teaches about the elders role; qualifications; character and how they are chosen.

Scripture: 1 Peter 5:1-3, Acts 20:28, 1 Tim. 3:1-7, Ex. 18:13-23, Number 11:14-17, Gal. 3:26-28
