Twelve Lessons for Mentoring Elders
This book and its companion, Study Guide to Biblical Eldership, provide a thorough, biblical mentoring program to help train church elders. It is a leader’s guide to the Study Guide. It is for the mentoring elder only, not the trainee. Because elders are busy people, and many do not have time or adequate resources to prepare for mentoring, this guide provides the mentoring elder with extensive answers to all the questions in the Study Guide and practical mentoring tips.
