Elders and Small Group Leaders
by Alexander Strauch
“An Urgent Call to Restore Biblical Church Leadership.” This is a lengthy overview of the biblical roles and expectations of church elders. The most thorough of the three recommended texts.
Elders and Leaders
by Gene A. Getz
“God’s Plan for Leading the Church.” This was written following a biblical exploration of church leadership by Gene Getz and the elders who served with him. Extremely practical in application.
by Robert H. Thune
“Equipping a New Generation of Servant Leaders.” This is the shortest of the three recommended elder training books. Concise and to the point.
Developing Small Group Leaders
Whatever gathering points you have for your church family, a primary focus needs to be on helping more people meet Jesus, be transformed into his image, and experience life as a part of His body. This is going to require intentional leaders who have been trained, empowered, and released to help make it happen. Need help with this training? Contact the District Office. We would love to help you explore some good options!
