“The Elders Who Are Among You I Exhort” – Garland White

Many in the church do not understand or appreciate their elders.  I love my elders deeply, and appreciate them for the burden they bear and the sacrifices they make on behalf of the kingdom of God.  One of them, a good friend named Michael White, is the son of an elder himself.  When I was putting together an issue of the Carolina Messenger about church leadership last year, I was able to get Michael’s father, Garland, to write this excellent article about elders.  All elders and Christians should read this.

Church Leadership Causes Growth – Jon Mitchell (Editor’s Page, November/December 2013 Issue)

At the end of 2013, I was the guest editor for the last issue of the Carolina Messenger for that year.  I decided to devote that issue to the theme of church leadership.  This is the editorial I wrote introducing the theme of the issue.

“Preach the Word…Do The Work of an Evangelist” – Michael Grooms

A great article from a good friend and sound preacher about the biblical responsibilities of preachers.  It also contains some good points about the relationship between elders and preachers.
