The Seventh-day Adventist Elder's Handbook is packed with information about the critical role that elders play in our church organization. Short excerpt from the book: "The church is God's idea. Everywhere God is at work there is organization. (Testimonies to Ministers, p. 26). Wherever God is at work there is organization. "A Vindication of the Presbyteriall-Government and Ministry" by Ministers and Elders of the London Provinciall Assembly. Published by Good Press. Good Press publishes a wide range of titles that encompasses every : Good Press.

  We the undersigned, as ministers, elders, and members of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church (OPC), present and publish this open letter in order to express our deep concern with regard to many comments and posts which were published on the “Genevan Commons” Facebook group and which were recently made public. The first clue comes in the book of Titus where we discover that elders are also overseers. These two words are used in the list of qualifications in Titus and 7. The elder is mentioned in verse 5 and in verse 7 the name of the elder is changed to overseer. That is, these two words refer to the same person.

  It’s true, Presbyterians ordain to ministries besides that of minister of the Word and Sacrament. “The Church’s ordered ministries described in the New Testament and maintained by this church are deacons and presbyters (teaching elders and ruling elders)” (Book of Order, G).Ordination is the rite by which persons are set aside with prayer and the laying on of hands to .   Elders are to be “gentle,” which means “not insisting on every right of letter of law or custom, yielding, gentle, kind, courteous, tolerant” (BDAG, s.v. ἐπιεικής, italics original); that is, “gracious, forbearing.” 8 This is not a person who winks at or celebrates sin. Rather, such a man is clear-headed about sin and righteousness but nevertheless does not appear.

The title of this book is based on a book by Steven Covey entitled, "7 Habits of Highly Effective People."In his book, Mr. Covey reviewed two hundred years of "success type" literature and found that regardless of their age, culture or profession, effective and thus successful people shared a number of common character traits which he reduced to seven for his book.

has written an excellent book on the roles and responsibilities of elders, called The Shepherd Leader (P & R Pub, ). He says on page 2 of this book, “The simple thesis of this book is, 'The fundamental responsibility of church leaders is to shepherd God's flock.' After all, the word 'pastor' comes from the Latin word Ministers and elders book 'shepherd.'.

The wide differences between ministers and ruling elders in our present Form of Government with respect to the manner of their trials, examination, and ordination are in the main retained and justified (; XVII:1).

Ministers are all permanent members of presbyteries and of general assemblies. If the minister shares his ideas, is defeated, yet he refuses to defer to the elders’ decision, there’s a lack of respect. If the minister refuses the wisdom or council of the elders, there’s a lack of respect.

Nothing is more important. Regular, Open Communication. I think a lot of elders and ministers feel as though they communicate.
