Looking for Elders in Your Church

Over at the 9Marks blog, Pastor Brian Croft offers three signs that a man in your church is ready to become an elder:

  1. Find men who function as a pastor without the title or recognition. 
  2. Find men who assume the pastoral burden, although it has not yet been placed on them. 
  3. Find men who shepherd their family the way a pastor should shepherd God’s people. 

In other words, look for men who pastor before they’re pastors.
