Biblical Eldership: The Biblical Model

In this series, we examine all that God’s word tells us about the important office of elder in the local church. We examine the various terms for elder, the function and qualifications of elders in the church, and how elders are to relate to each other and to the local church body for whose spiritual life they must give an account to the Great Shepherd. The goal of this series is the establishment and maintenance of a Biblical model of church government through obedience to the Biblical texts.

This series of Adult Sunday School lessons were taught by Dave Rich, a pastor at Kootenai Community Church.
