If leadership is as important as the Bible teaches, then it is clearly the case that bad leadership will make for bad churches. This talk therefore covers the extremely detailed teaching the Bible gives regarding the stringent qualifications for elders, and the things that must and must not be true concerning their lives. Although not necessarily what many Christians seem to think they are, these qualifications are necessary in order to protect the people in the church from any leadership that might potentially end up doing more harm than good. If you want to know just how many academic qualifications and college degrees aren’t needed before someone can become an elder, then this is the talk for you.
