Publisher's Description

Emphasizing purposeful ministry over project management, this book outlines a clear and concise "job description" for elders, helping church leaders to shepherd their congregations well. Part of the 9Marks Building Healthy Churches series.

Author Bio

Jeramie Rinne (MDiv, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary) serves as senior pastor of South Shore Baptist Church in Hingham, Massachusetts. He has been a regular contributor to the 9Marks Journal, a devotional writer for the Good Book Company, and an instructor for the Simeon Trust Workshops on biblical exposition. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their four children on the south shore of Boston.

Endorsements

Leadership, like the other gifts of the Spirit, is for the edifying of the body of Christ. Paul made it plain to Titus that things were not in order in a church until proper leadership was established. Most unsolved problems in church life can be traced back to defective leadership. Jeramie Rinne unpacks what the Bible has to say about the identity and activity of the local church elder with a freshness and clarity that is profoundly helpful. This is a book that elders can read together to their profit and one that will help a congregation to pray for and support its leaders so that their work will be a joy and not a burden.
-Alistair Begg,
Parkside Church, Cleveland, Ohio

Jeramie Rinne proves it's possible to write both comprehensively and concisely about the office and ministry of church elders. And what a valuable book this is! I found it not simply informative but devotional, helpful to me as a pastor in my love for Jesus and, by extension, his church. I am hard-pressed to think of another book on this subject that is so readily shareable.
-Jared C. Wilson,
Middletown Springs Community Church, Middletown Springs, Vermont

Do you long to see a growing, godly group of mature men in your church who work alongside the full-time pastors to shepherd, teach, and train the congregation for disciple-making? Biblically sharp, wise and, warmly written, this little book is about the essentially collegial nature of church ministry and leadership. Regardless of your view as to how "elders" should be appointed, organized, or named, you will find much here to challenge, encourage, and guide.
-Tony Payne,
Publishing Director, Matthias Media

    Jeramie Rinne's small volume is the latest in the "9Marks: Building Healthy Churches Series." It makes the plea for the plurality of elders in a congregational form of church government. In addition to listing the qualifications for elders, the author also touches upon the work that awaits those chosen to fulfill that role, including some of the pitfalls to avoid. Like the previous books in this series, it is compact, concise and just what the busy pastoral staff can work through together, perhaps in a retreat setting. Rinne's style is practical, to the point, and laced with appropriate humor. It avoids debate and argument with other leadership models and extols the wisdom of multiple leadership within the local assembly. As with the rest of the 9Marks series, "Church Elders" provides a starting point for more in-depth investigation. For those looking for something with more theological substance, they would be wise to read Alexander Strauch's "Biblical Eldership: An Urgent Call to Restore Biblical Church Leadership." Mark Dever's "Polity: Biblical Arguments on How to Conduct Church Life" is also a valuable resource. This latter volume may be out of print, but may be downloaded from the 9Marks website. As our church stands on the eve of appointing our first two lay elders, we have found help in each of these works. For those churches considering a similar transition, Rinne's book is probably the one with which to begin.
