Leading God's People: A Handbook for Elders by Stewart Matthew
This text sets out to address the question of what Church Elders are for and what the job of a Session is in the modern church. It seeks to provide clear baseline thinking about the Eldership and applies the key ideas of teamwork and leadership to the Session. It looks at common problems, how to manage the Session team, and how to gain ground. Elders, and others engaged in Christian leadership, are encouraged to read this book as a text and to use it as the basis for individual activity and group discussion. In doing so, it is hoped that the vast potential of the Eldership can be realized in today's church.
