Elders: Men of Character, Competence and Calling
Passage: Titus 1:5–9
If the churches in Crete are to grow into maturity - representing Jesus to their city, island, and the world - then they need healthy leadership to guide them. God has given to the church pastor/elders for this very purpose. They are called to be men shaped by the gospel (men of character, competency and calling) so that they can demonstrate and declare to their church family what it means to be gospel-centered in every area of life.
