In this work, we consider the critical need for relationships in the life of an elder. Relationships are not only a natural part of life, but a necessityfor serving in a congregation. Learning to live in a community, enjoying the relationships into which God has called us, enables us to serve as elders and leaders within the congregation. As an elder, one has to acknowledge that leadership requires relationships. Elders were meant to serve as a team, not solo. One may not think of relationships as a matter of stewardship, but consider what an elder who is not a steward of relationships would be like: disengaged, conspicuously absent from church events, a family that seems more dysfunctional than functional, cliquish and closed to new people. Elders must exemplify Christ in their relationships with others. Enjoy His People will explore the elder’s relationships with his Family, the Father, with those in the Faith, Friendships with those not in the Faith, Fellow Elders and, finally, with Difficult People.
