Elders’ ShopNotes Volume 4:
Practical Ministry and Studies in 2 Timothy
By: Chuck Gianotti & Jack Spender


The content of this fourth volume leans heavily toward the “hands on” information that many elders are requesting in order to serve the people of God. Subjects like conducting a baptism, visiting the sick, and arranging for ministry in the assembly are about as relevant as one can get in helping elders function effectively. Other essays incorporate a bit more theory, addressing issues such as ‘when is a man ready to be an elder’ or ‘excellence in preaching’. But overall this volume has to do with the practical side of the shepherding work of 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. 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
