Hey Fletch … When we have our coaching call later today, can we talk about role descriptions for elders?
DRF—Few churches lay out a role description for their elders (or deacons, trustees or other governing board titles). I’m a fan of listing the scope, essential elements, constitutional demands, expectations, delegated responsibilities, etc. List what elders do and what they don’t do. Here’s a great example in the job descriptions page that I helped create when we served in Dallas. I’m looking forward to hearing your ideas and talking about what best fits your church.
