The relationship between pastors, elders, and deacons impacts the church, and the results can be nurturing or divisive.

The crew chats about the function of each church office, and what those office holders can do to encourage one another, and thus maintain and improve the health of the local body.

Todd, Carl, and Aimee discuss whether personalities should be considered when choosing men to serve, and just what can go right…or wrong!

From past horror stories to present leadership bliss, the team offers helpful advice. Pull up a chair and join in! However, be advised: Carl’s been sharpening his rhetorical sword, and he’s ready to pounce!

Thanks to our friends at P&R, we’re giving away copies of The Elder and His Work by David Dickson. Please sign up for the opportunity to win.
