Biblically Qualified Eldership

Thanks to Thabiti for linking to Joe Thorn and his post on a building process for potential elders and deacons. There is a follow-up post on some of the reading they do.

Thabiti’s blog also has a running series of practical insights into what biblically qualified elders look like and some of the questions to ask about candidates. Looks like a great deal of work for a pastor, but task of spiritual church leadership is vital.
