Whether formal or informal, recognized or unrecognized, leadership is a given in any church. With this universal reality in mind, the real question we need to ask is: “What kind of leaders should the church have?” Did God intend His church to be led by just anyone? Or did He give some outline, some matrix, some set of instructions, for church leadership?

As we answer this question, we repeatedly see in the Bible an emphasis on a group of leaders referred to as elders, bishops, or overseers (Acts 14:21-23, 1 Timothy 5:17, Titus 1:5, James 5:14, 1 Timothy 3:1-2).

God intends for His church to be led by godly male leaders known as elders. So what is an elder?

Pastor Blair is leading this group with three primary audiences in mind:

  1. Current elders who want to deepen their theological understanding and their Gospel fluency.
  2. Elders-in-training who are progressing through a season of learning and examination.
  3. Christian men who are seeking to better understand the Bible’s teaching about local church leadership.
