Elders: More Than Just Old Guys

Last week the elders and I met for the first time in the new church year.  All four of us were there and it was great to get things moving again.  We’ve certainly got our work cut out for us!

One of the things I’d like to see the elders accomplish these next few months is the completion of some important projects, especially regarding important church documents and membership.  We’re also going to carefully study two books together.  From now through December we’re studying Next Generation Leader by Andy Stanley.  This is one of the best books on leadership I’ve ever read.  It’ll be great to read it and discuss it with the elders at CrossWay!

Last year was the first time I’ve led a group of elders, so it was very new.  I bombarded them with random messages and books on various topics, and there wasn’t much follow up discussion.  This time I’ve plotted out our agenda for the whole year so we can be strategic in accomplishing some things.
