No training for elders is complete without a discussion about decision making. After all, the decisions of elders have a huge impact on the local church. People’s spiritual lives are at stake, and that is not an overstatement.
The reality though is that leaders don’t always agree on things. See the conflict between Paul and Barnabas in Acts 15:36-40 for an example of that.
This series will look at some fundamental principles from the early church on decision making, and then will give you some guidance in developing a decision-making policy.
In a perfect world where everyone was completely in step with the Holy Spirit and fully mature in their faith and wisdom, there would be no need to have this series. However, elders are men of God whose sanctification is still a work in progress.
So we need to think through how to make decisions. Join us for this four-part series on decision making in the church.Audio File
