The four books that started e2: effective elders

e2: effective elders is a ministry born in 2009 in response to the increasing need for equipping elders for leadership in the local congregation.  Since that time, e2: effective elders has grown rapidly in its ministry.  It started with four books on elder equipping, as well as a DVD curriculum on “What Every Elder Should Know!” which introduces elders to the nine essential skills of leading a congregation.  Since 2010 e2: effective elders has spoken at the North American Christian Convention, ReChurch in Indianapolis, and is scheduled to speak at several higher education institutions and other conferences.
