This book is a manual for raising up and equipping elders or shepherds. It provides resources for identifying emerging leaders, for training elders and their wives, and for beginning an elder development program in a congregation. A vital resource for a neglected area of church life. 'In the leadership literature the question is asked, Are people born leaders or do we train them to become leaders? I suggest a third option. Leaders emerge. When we begin to offer training and development ministries leaders emerge.' from the Preface
