Episode 45: On Elders’ Meetings (Part 2)

Talk
03.27.2018

Jonathan and Mark continue their conversation on elders’ meetings, exploring common questions like: should elders require unanimity? What should a new pastor do if he inherits a contentious elder? Should close decisions be delayed, or should elders just move forward? How can senior pastors resist the temptation to dominate every meeting?

(Listen to Part 1 of this conversation here.)
