Should a church have a plurality of elders? Should elders be paid? Can women be deacons? Are all elders equal? Were Timothy and Titus Elders/Pastors? Which model of church government should I support: Episcopalianism, Presbyterianism, or Congregationalism? How should elders be chosen? How does the authority of the elder compare with the authority of the congregation?*
On Tuesday, April 7th at 10:00 am in Binkley Chapel, SEBTS is hosting a Casual Conversation on the topic of Elders and Deacons with professors Danny Akin, Mark Liederbach, Ben Merkle, and Dwayne Milioni. This conversation is designed to help you further develop your understanding of the roles of these two offices, and how you can better answer these tough questions in your own local church.
