Church leadership is a shared responsibility, not a solo venture. This book equips pastors and elders to lead the church together as a team, focusing not so much on what they are to be but on what they as a body are to do. Written by a former pastor, now a seminary lecturer and longtime volunteer elder, this book is a groundbreaking resource for local churches of all shapes and sizes.


“An amazing achievement on eldership—a true gift to the church! This Christ-centered, gospel-focused, biblically grounded, theologically clear, exegetically thorough, well-researched, and immensely practical book should find its home in every church and seminary library and the hands of every man called to lead, oversee, shepherd, protect, and teach God’s church.”

—Douglas Sean O’Donnell, Senior Vice President of Bible Editorial, Crossway Books

“The perspective provided by this reputable, credible, and gospel-sensitive author is valuable for philosophy but also a great blessing for the actual practices of leaders who serve in a local church.”

—Bryan Chapell, Author, Christ-Centered Preaching; Stated Clerk, Presbyterian Church in America

“Blends strong biblical foundations, gospel-driven intentionality, and practical wisdom. . . . Intentionality and practical wisdom inform discussions of such essential church issues as maintaining meaningful communication with and care for members, planning and conducting elders’ meetings, capitalizing on the diversity of gifts among elders, and prioritizing mission and evangelism—alongside worship and disciple-making.”

—Dennis E. Johnson, Professor Emeritus of Practical Theology, Westminster Seminary California
