Overview


Servants in Charge is a training guide for elders and deacons with a study guide included.  Servants in Charge define the roles of elders and deacons and offers practical suggestions for selecting these important leaders. And for servants who find themselves in charge, there are guidelines toward effective and fruitful ministry.  Have you ever been in an office or a place of business when someone walked in and asked, "Who's in charge here?"'  Can it be that the people who enter your church ask the same question but it is important to realize the answer is not a mystery.  In a beautiful parable about His second coming, Jesus made it clear that His servants are in charge. These people are known not so much for their position or power, but for their attitude of true servant hood. In Servants in Charge we find that Dr. Bailey deals with the topics of who a deacon and elder are to be to what their qualifications are from a scriptural basis.  He also goes on to explain their biblically based ministries and their spiritual gifts as laid out in the New Testament. He completes this short study with a guide for preparation for them and their election and consecration. A great must have for the church today.
