Leadership in the Church
Christian leadership means ministering by the power of the Spirit, by the mind of Christ, and with the wisdom of God.
Who leads the church? This question is important for every Christian, yet it can sometimes get lost in complex discussions about the structure and organization of the church. Most essentially, we need to know what kind of leaders Jesus Christ has appointed to care for His people, protect them from error, and equip them for service.
In Leadership in the Church, Dr. R.C. Sproul looks at four primary leadership roles that are identified in Scripture, including the church offices of elder and deacon. This rich biblical study can prepare aspiring leaders and instruct Christians seeking to learn more about the church. It also aims to encourage leaders to depend on the Holy Spirit, who empowers His people for ministry.
