Free Resource on Church Structure

A Display of God's Glory  by Mark Dever (PDF only, link provided below)The past few weeks at PBC we’ve been talking extensively about elders and deacons. Yes, it may sound incredibly boring to devote any length of time to talk about church structure, but these discussions have been an encouraging indicator of our health as a church.

For you nerds (like me!) who simply can’t get enough on the ins and outs of healthy church structure, we’d like to recommend a short, clear, and helpful resource. Mark Dever’s little book A Display of God’s Glory: Basics of Church Structure is available for free download here.

In this short book, Dever devotes a chapter to understanding deacons, elders, congregationalism, and membership from a biblical worldview. I think you’ll be greatly helped by investing some time to read what he has to say.

See you Sunday!
