1 Timothy 3:1-7 God's Leaders: The Elder Summary: God has given many gifts to the church, and one of them are her leaders. Being an elder or pastor in the church is not easy, and not everyone is called to do it. But it is also a role of joy to serve God's people. Let's listen today to learn what God thinks of elders: Outline: What is an elder in the church of Jesus? 1. He is a man who is called 2. He is a man of character 3. He is a man of conviction 4. He is a man who is capable Verse: 1 Timothy 3:1 The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task. Discussion questions: 1. Why do you think Paul gives such a detailed set of criteria for those who serve as elders in the church? What is at stake? 2. What should this set of qualifications do in YOU, even if you are not called to be an elder? 3. With such a high set of qualifications, how should this shape our search for elders at NCPC? Will you commit to pray for this process at our church?

How has the church often misunderstood or misapplied the Bible's teaching about women's roles? 2. How does Paul and the New Testament actually elevate the status of women compared to the culture? How does the calling to learn with submissiveness apply to all people, not just men? 3. Why does Paul refer to the creation order to explain the unique roles of men and women? How can we as a church be even more faithful to the Bible's teaching on men's and women's roles?
