There is a very sad lack of good local leadership in the church of our day. The desperate need of this hour is godly Shepherds who will lead, feed and gaurd the flock. Each community needs such qualified, gifted and faithful men. This is a simple article written out of a very deep burden and backed by much prayer over the years. May the Lord again raise up Shepherds after His own heart who will be used to lead the flocks of Christ into the true ways of God.
"The Patriarchs passed away and Judges were raised up in their place after which Kings were set up. But during all these diverse era’s local elders functioned amongst God’s people. A cooperate group of mature elders sitting in council together was God’s basic ordained means of leadership and government."
