This is a Focus Group from the Healthy Leaders Conference in Dallas, 12 – 14 November 2015.
It is clear from both 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1 that there is nothing extraordinary about leaders among God’s people. The requirements for elders (a.k.a bishops or pastors) is that they live exemplary lives. They lead by showing others what it means to be a disciple in the everyday. The one distinguishing mark of a pastor is his ability to teach, i.e. explain how the gospel shapes and defines our lives as the people of God. Therefore, Healthy Leaders are first and foremost examples to the flock of what it means to be a sheep!
We have designed the culture and content of the conference to encourage and equip leaders at every level in the local church.
