Churches select or elect leaders as office-holders, paid staff, ministry area co-ordinators, leaders of particular groups or activities and as their Minister. But what guidelines do we give to assess whether someone is suitable for Christian leadership in any form?
These notes list criteria from four relevant Bible passages
- Acts 6:1-7
- 1 Timothy 3:1-13
- Titus 1:5-9
- 1 Peter 5:1-4
and then offer additional checklists for:
- Church membership
- Legal requirements.
If you are appointing leaders within your church, here is guidance to help you make a wise selection and to offer a realistic ongoing challenge.
