124 Things Church Elders Do. 18 Things They Don’t

Leadership in the church is not an easy task. These lists on plodblog would be overwhelming to all of us in church leadership were it not for the power of God that works within us. Elders must not take these things lightly. Nor must the church take lightly the hard work of being an Elder in the church.

I am always stopped in my tracks when I reflect on the little two-letter word in Peter’s words to elders – “…shepherd the flock of God” (1 Peter 5:2) – it is not our flock, my flock, or your flock. It is God’s flock. Church leaders must always hold this truth humbly in the process of making decisions, guiding, leading, confronting, and otherwise shepherding the local flock.
