They Keep Watch Over Your Souls
Shepherding God’s people is both a noble calling and a great responsibility. Leading, feeding, protecting, and caring for others requires skill, diligence, and a continual dependence on the Holy Spirit. Though frequently demanding, eldership remains a critically important task, for without proper shepherding, local communities of faith are slow to take on the character of Christ and often succumb to the enemy’s constant attacks. In this series of eight important lessons on biblical eldership, Alexander Strauch addresses the key issues every man must consider when taking on or executing the office of eldership.
