Overview

Gospel Eldership: Equipping a New Generation of Servant Leaders by Robert H. Thune

Biblical church leadership requires more than good management principles or theological knowledge; it calls for deep, personal roots in the gospel. Gospel Eldership is a ten-lesson workbook to help pastors develop elders who are strong in the gospel and able to apply it to the real-time needs of the church.
