Our Purpose

e2’s Purpose:  Equipping Elders to Lead

e2’s Plan:  We develop leadership skills by partnering with elders in relationship, providing practical-relevant products, and presenting training events.

e2’s Core Values:  WE . . .

  • Honor Biblical Authority:  e2 affirms that “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).  The leaders of e2 believe that the Word of God should form the basis of our beliefs and practices as leaders in the church. The principles and directives which form the basis of our teaching and exhortation are taken from Scripture.
  • Invest Relationally in Elders: The leadership team at e2 focuses primarily on the elders of a congregation.   We specialize in the teaching, instruction, encouragement and  development of the elders in the local church.  We believe that the elders are key to the health and growth of every congregation.  When the elders grow and are effective in their ministry, the church will grow and fulfill its calling.
  • Provide Practical Help Pertinent to Elders: e2 is committed to equipping elders for leadership in the local congregation through providing resources, sponsoring conferences, and leadership consultation.  Our materials and information are all dedicated to the strengthening of the church’s eldership.
  • Pursue Excellence: e2 accepts Paul’s admonition that “Whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him” (Colossians 3:17).   Our Lord and the Church deserve the very best we have to give.  In all of our interactions with leaders, in our preparation and delivery of information and in our overall ministry, we strive for excellence and quality when it comes to serving elders.
