“The lack of elder training is an extremely critical problem. We are not training the very men who lead and have oversight of our churches. We erroneously believe that our serving elders and deacons understand spiritual oversight and care, but in fact our churches are filled with elders and deacons who confess that they are unprepared and untrained for their work.” — Alexander Strauch
Biblical Eldership Mentor’s Guide, along with its companion works, Biblical Eldership and Biblical Eldership Study Guide, provide a comprehensive, biblical mentoring program to help train church elders.
The Mentor’s Guide is the leader’s edition of the Biblical Eldership Study Guide. It is designed for the mentoring elder only, not the trainee. Because elders are busy men, and many do not have the time or adequate resources to prepare for mentoring, this guide provides the mentoring elder with extensive answers to all the questions in the Study Guide, along with practical mentoring tips. Both guides are designed to be used alongside the Biblical Eldership text.
