In Part 1 of this conversation, Jonathan and Mark chatted about transitioning a church toward a plurality of elders. In this conversation, they talk about how a church, once convinced of this practice, should actually choose the men who ought to serve in this role.

Should a pastor just recommend the best preachers? His closest confidants? What should he look for?
