Question And Answer Panel
Faithful Shepherds, Ezek 34
In Titus 1:5, we learn that Titus was to “set in order the things that are lacking and appoint elders in every city.” By His perfect wisdom, God has laid out how the church is to be governed by His Word. It is such a blessing that God’s design for the leadership of His church has been revealed to us. We must ensure that our practices and doctrine today mirror with what Scripture dictates.
We will also discuss the role and responsibilities of a deacon and how deacons and elders should work together.
As the shepherds go, so goes the church. One of the most dangerous things leaders can do is to appoint men who are not biblically qualified. Conversely, one of the most life-giving things leaders can do is to properly identify and present elders to the church for affirmation.
