There is a unique covenant commitment between an elder who is set apart vocationally for the ministry of the gospel and the church he serves.
God has given elders a measure of authority within the church for its good, and He expects its members to submit to their leadership in humility.
A church must understand how to discern whether a man is called to shepherding leadership if it is to preserve and protect the gospel.
Healthy churches depend on faithful leaders who are growing in an understanding of what they are to do, how they are to do it, and the goal of their work.
If we believe that God is infinitely wise and entirely good, we will not simply give in to His instructions but will embrace them with joy.
