In this episode, I talk about leadership in a new church, how it is recognized and developed. Here are some of the points:
- I discuss the process I went through in developing the leadership for a church plant in 2007.
- I discuss two books that we read through and answered questions about, Reforming Marriage by Douglas Wilson, and Biblical Eldership by Alexander Strauch.
- I discuss a list of questions from Alexander Strauch’s study guide that each of the five men in the core group answered in preparation for our monthly meeting. The study guide can be found here: http://www.amazon.com/Study-Guide-Biblical-Eldership-Mentoring/dp/0936083131
- The three determinations as to whether a man should be an elder include desire, qualifications, and availability.
