By the Lord’s design, local churches are to be overseen by elders – mature, faithful men who would shepherd the flock in that place. This is a vital work. Sadly, though, many churches are lacking qualified men who are able to fill this role.
Donald Townsley (1931-2013) labored as a preacher of the gospel of Christ for over fifty years. Recognizing the lack of qualified, godly leadership in churches and the problems that come from that deficiency, he put together this material on the work of elders. His simple and straightforward outline of the topic will help men prepare themselves for this work and help congregations identify and develop elders among them.
There are questions at the end of each lesson to aid in personal and group studies of this material.
