Scriptures & Info Regarding Church Leadership

At our discussion meeting a few weeks ago, several topics were discussed

concerning the future of our church. Of those topics, it was decided that the

first issue the church should address would be church leadership. Later this

summer, we will meet together to discuss and seek God’s plan for us

concerning church leadership.


Before we meet, please seek God’s direction through study of the scripture

and through prayer. Below are several scriptures that have been submitted

by members of the church that discuss God’s plan for church leadership so

we can all prepare for this meeting.


If you have any other scriptures, Christian commentaries, or other resources

that you believe can help us understand God’s plans for church leadership,

please give those to Ryan to be added to this list.
