A Blueprint for Elders – 1 Timothy Ch3v1–7

A Blueprint for Elders – 1 Timothy Ch3v1–7

This morning, Craig Dyer continues the Blueprint series in 1 Timothy. This passage gives Paul’s instruction for the selection of Elders. Craig points out that this is not an exalted status, from which women and most men are excluded. It is a humble and heavy service to the church for which those men already doing the work and showing the best fit are chosen. Of the requirements listed by Paul, most are character. Only teaching and management are capabilities. All the characteristics should be the aim of all believers, but they are required of Elders.
