As we gear up for our upcoming TGC LA EQUIP Quarterly Meeting on 5/27/14 on Raising Up Lay Elders in Your Church I thought I’d post some free resources online that I’ve found helpful. I plan on publishing another blog post on some recommended book resources on the topic.
Some free online resources on thinking about elders (what I’d call pastor-elders to avoid biblical confusion) in the local church:
9Marks Journals on the topic (click the links to download the pdf, mobi, or epub versions or read it online)
- Elders Part 1 (2007)
- Elders Part 2 (2007)
- Lay Elders: A User’s Guide Part 1
- Lay Elders: A User’s Guide Part 2
