1 Peter 5:1-4 by Robert Dean
Elders. Bishops. Pastors. How did these positions for church leaders begin in the early church? Listen to this lesson to learn which leader is mentioned first in Acts and what their role was. Hear about the rapid growth of the church and how provision had to be made for administering to the needs of the congregation. See how a progression of leadership began to develop and what plurality of elders means. Understand that what is important is that there be a shepherd to teach the flock and those who can support him with all the other functions that must be provided.
