Part of the 9Marks Healthy Church Study Guides series, this study teaches participants about godly leadership, God's example as a leader, and how to submit to authority.
Because it can be abused, leadership is a risky business for those in it and those under it. But God has good plans for leadership within the church. This study explores God's plans for authority by focusing on God's revelation of himself as the shepherd, and how God calls leaders to image him. The rest of the study considers individuals who have special responsibilities within the church: elders, deacons, and you.
A series of ten 6-7 week studies covering the nine distinctives of a healthy church as originally laid out in Nine Marks of a Healthy Church by Mark Dever. This series explores the biblical foundations of key aspects of the church, helping Christians to live out those realities as members of a local body. Conveniently packaged and accessibly written, the format of this series is guided, inductive discussion of Scripture passages and is ideal for use in Sunday school, church-wide studies, or small group contexts.
