Elders, Deacons, & Church Leadership

How many leadership offices were there in the 1st century church? How were these offices appointed? What were the differences in duties and qualifications of these offices? And what’s more Biblical anyways: Pastors or Elders?

These were only some of the questions we looked at in a recent study I led on, “Leadership Within the Local Church.”

I put together the following handout worksheets which may be of use for someone else too in gaining familiarity with the verses in the Bible relating to these issues.
