1 Peter 5:1-4 Serving
Eldership is such a counter-cultural leadership calling (in both the first century, and today), as it is servant-leaders that God puts in charge of His people. In addition, note that there is plurality in each of these passages. Paul nor Peter speaks to an elder, but always elders, nor is there a distinguished “head elder” per se. How is this idea of plurality a safety-net for a church? Where have you seen the benefits of plurality at GBC?
