2017 Conference

Leadership

Theme

The theme, or mark of a healthy church, for the 2017 conference is Leadership.

The Bible teaches that each local church should be led by a plurality of godly, qualified men called elders. Paul lays out the qualifications for elders in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9. Passages that evidence a plurality of elders in one local church include Acts 14:23, Acts 20:17, 1 Timothy 4:14, 1 Timothy 5:17, and James 5:14.

God gifts churches with elders to feed God’s sheep God’s word, guide the sheep, and protect the sheep from attackers, while protecting both themselves and the church through the wisdom of their plurality.

The bottom line? Biblical church leadership is important because without it, God’s people are like sheep without shepherds.
