One aspect of life in All Nations is that we have a number of elders alongside the congregation pastors. Together the pastors and elders act on behalf of the congregation in leadership.
On the other side of this newsletter you’ll see a notice about eldership nominations.
The key attributes of a good elder were summed up by Bill Hybels as character, competence, and chemistry. Character is most important: does the person fit the descriptions in 1 Timothy 3, or Titus 1? Competence (the ability to lead well) and chemistry (the ability to relate well to others, especially other leaders) are also vital.
Please prayerfully consider who you might nominate, bearing these things in mind.
