    Regarding Ruling Elders logo

    A Resource for Serving Faithfully

    Ruling elders are elected by congregations as “persons of wisdom and maturity of faith, having demonstrated skills in leadership and being compassionate in spirit” (G-2.0301). They are called to ministry in partnership with teaching elders. Within this calling, ruling elders have responsibilities in several areas of the life of the church including exercise in leadership, governance, spiritual discernment, and discipline.

    This resource seeks to lift up the specific responsibilities of ruling elders while also providing an opportunity to reflect upon how they are lived out. It also seeks to nurture the spiritual life of those serving in this role through devotional pieces, descriptions of spiritual practices, and other resources for growing as spiritual leaders.
