Elders – you are our unpaid pastors across this Division. With so many pastors covering multiple congregations, you are often called upon to preach, chair meetings, do visitation, resolve conflicts and more. At any given time, 7% of the almost 6,000 congregations across have no pastor assigned to them. So the leadership, especially at those times, depends largely on you. NAD Ministerial Department is here for you with prayer support, leadership training, resources, coaching and more.
The General Conference Ministerial Association has developed many resources for local church elders.
UPDATE - The Elder's handbook is now revised it and it is available at the ABC’s and at the GC Ministerial Resource Center.
