How can you implement biblical eldership in your church? Here you will find guidelines to help you lead your church in the transition, based on the experience of other churches who have gone through the process.
Every elder desires to be found faithful, but excellence in church leadership requires intentional and regular study. Our curriculum contains over 250 short videos to help you become an effective shepherd of God's people.
A book that should be on the shelf of every elder is God, Marriage, and Family: Rebuilding the Biblical Foundations, 2nd edition, by Andreas Kostenberger.

Both us find these video resources add to the study and we often find that the presenters will raise a point or look at an idea in a slightly different way in which we have done previously. Bottom line, I will not teach this class ever again without the videos being an integral part of the lesson plans.
Our deepest thanks to each of you men who have and are dedicating yourself to this project."
