I Peter 5:1-4 "The Elders of the Church" Sermon Series: Kingdom Builders

This week Pastor Dan continued in our Kingdom Builder series by examining the role of elders from 1 Peter 5:1-4. In this passage we see Peter exhorting the elders to not neglect their role in shepherding and overseeing those under their care. Pulling from other passages such as Philippians 2, 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 2, God reveals from Scripture what His expectations are for those who are called and appointed to serve as elders in the local church in light of Christ’s example and call. The sermon called the church to thankfulness for God’s gift of leaders and to consider those who might be nominated for such service in the near future.
