This book contains a study of the qualifications for elders of a local church as outlined in the New Testament. The target readership is elders and potential elders. However, as many have recognized, all of these qualifications are listed elsewhere in Scripture as standards for Christian maturity. What makes these unique for elders is that they are collected in two primary lists in Scripture targeted for elders, along with a few other passages. In essence, the qualifications represent the standard of spiritual maturity that all Christians should strive to attain. Anyone wanting to grow spiritually would be well-served to study the picture of maturity found in the elder qualifications.
