Elders’ ShopNotes Volume 1: Biblical Foundations
By: Chuck Gianotti & Jack Spender


Many elders today work full-time jobs, have families, and are involved in various ministries. The busy elder has precious little time for self-study and further training. In addition, some have been thrust into the role of elder with virtually no training. This problem is compounded by the fact that much of the practical teaching for pastoral leadership is contained in resources that are directed to “The Pastor” of a traditional church, so it is limited in its applicability to secularly-employed elders.

Elders’ ShopNotes is a bi-monthly ministry letter written in both English and Spanish and is distributed upon request to close to 1,000 subscribers in North and South America as well as some places in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and other locations. Each issue contains three to four articles aimed at the needs of elders. They are not designed to solve problems or settle doctrinal issues. Rather, ESN is designed to strengthen and equip elders so they can do the work of solving problems and of settling doctrinal issues. The name “ShopNotes” has the connotation of helping a carpenter learn to use his tools well and effectively. So, ESN is designed, so to speak, to help elders use the biblical “tools” of eldering well and effectively. For example, how does one conduct a funeral, visit a sick person, resolve conflict among elders, manage one’s time to ensure continued growth as a believer and spiritual leader? These articles provide:

 1) “bite-size” ministry, readily digestible for the average working elder whose time is at a premium
2) foundational teaching on biblical eldership
3) helpful how-to’s that are practical for shepherding the congregation
4) basic biblical leadership principles
