Endorsements of Eldership in Action
“Dick Swartley has spent a lifetime thinking about the issues of biblical church government, and has been at the forefront of establishing a biblically ordered church that has a worldwide outreach. He sets forth a positive, practical vision for effective church eldership. I highly recommend this valuable work as standard reading for church leaders. It fills a big gap.”
– Alexander Strauch author of Biblical Eldership
“I have not read any other book on church leadership and governing that so fully integrates the biblical and wisely practical! It will be immensely helpful to those who will have to give an account to Jesus Christ for their leadership role in this Church.”
– Walt Russell Ph.D. Professor of New Testament, Talbot School of Theology
“…a valuable addition to the study of the pastoral leadership of the church…. This is an excellent resource, and I think any church seeking to wisely implement a truly biblical eldership will find this both challenging and edifying. Highly recommended.”
