Elder/Pastor Conference 2020


Charles Faber, BBC

Elder/Pastor Conference 2020

Saturday, January 25, 9 AM to 3 PM

Leading the day: Charles Faber, Academic Dean / Professor of Theology and New Testament, BBC

In the time together we’re going to explore a series of related questions that will help us to properly shape our view of elders as leaders. Over the few hours we’re together, we’ll dive into the issues by giving you a few tools to work with, a couple of inventories to take, opportunities to hash things out in group discussions, and pulling things together in debriefs and dialogues. For a sneak peek at the kinds of questions we’re going to tackle, check these out . . .

  • Are the qualifications in 1 Timothy 3 character competencies or leadership competencies?
  • Are any social styles (personality types) better aligned to elder qualifications than others?
  • Are any social styles (personality types) better aligned with servant leadership than others?
  • Are any commonly valued leadership traits off limits to a servant leader?
  • What’s the difference between a servant leader and a weak leader?
  • Jesus alludes to himself as “stone” that “breaks people” (Matt. 21:42-43). Um . . . how is that servant leadership?

You’re not going to be sitting and taking a bunch of notes, so come prepared to do some thinking, some contributing, asking some questions, and perhaps some pushing back. Should be fun!
