Dear Fred

Dear mr. Smith, I am serving as an elder in my church. This is a new role for me, and I have not had any mentoring or internship. Aside from prayer, what is the single most important thing I can do, to become a godly servant-leader? Thanx. Bill

Fred's Response

There is an ancient saying, “when you want to do the will of God, you are.” Is there someone on the elder board whom you respect as the best role model? Get close to him. Seldom will you find a person unwilling to help an eager learner. is a tremendous resource for biblical teaching. You will find sermons that address the topic of eldership and leadership.
