HCR028: Who will lead the new church?

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.
  • The three determinations as to whether a man should be an elder include desire, qualifications, and availability.
