A Skeptic’s Guide to Church (Week 2): “Shepherding Like Jesus”

Jason Mayhall, Lead Pastor – Titus 1:5-9

Pastor Jason Mayhall leads Redemption Bible Church in the continuation of the sermon series entitled “A Skeptic’s Guide to Church,” a look at what makes a vibrant and inviting church environment. Pastor Jason teaches, from Paul’s letter to Titus, about church elders and government. These are the pillars on which the church stands, to preach the Word of God. Church leaders can be instrumental in either bringing people into the church or pushing them away from church, turning them off from the faith. Paul talks about how a healthy church must have healthy spiritual leadership, which encourages us to center ourselves on Jesus Christ. When we look at elders, we should ask: What would happen if the church imitates this person? The characteristics of good elders are explored, and the need for elders to lead and guide the church. With good leadership, the followers of Jesus Christ are able to experience blessing they could never have imagined.
