  • Overview

    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 in 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. 

    At this conference, we will explain the various passages of Scripture that explain the role of an elder in a local church. We will address issues such as:

    What is biblical eldership? 
    How should elders be installed? 
    What is an elder’s life like in a local church? 
    What about his family life? 
    What about elder vows? 
    How much authority should elders have? 
    What moral qualifications are necessary? 
    Must an elder be married? 
    Should each church have more than one elder? 
    Should elders be paid, ordained or serve for life? 

    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.
