Resources on the biblical basis of “senior pastor”

Polity: Serving and Leading the Local Church, by Dave Harvey, pp.6-17.

Thabiti Anyabwile devotes two posts to this topic – part 1 | part 2

D.A. Carson comments on this question and I share my thoughts on his comments.

Display of God’s Glory, Mark Dever (free pdf here), pp. 23-4.  I reflected on his argument and gently disagreed with my former pastor and dear brother.

On Church Leadership, Mark Driscoll, pp. 20-4.

The Master’s Plan for the Church, John MacArthur, pp. 196-7

I posted my thoughts on the topic reflecting on some of the various arguments:

  1. Reflecting on Mark Dever’s argument
  2. Reflecting on D.A. Carson’s argument
  3. Reflecting on Dave Harvey’s argument
  4. Reflecting on Mark Driscoll’s argument
  5. Reflecting on Thabiti Anyabwile’s argument
  6. Reflecting on John MacArthur’s argument
