Elders and Prayer

One of the most important and valuable tools for any elder is prayer. Take a few moments to listen as Bob discusses the value and impact of prayer with the elders at the Mannford Church of Christ. The relationship these men have with God through prayer has changed their lives, their leadership, and the church in Mannford.


A Winning Combination

Paul identifies the need for Christians to have the same mind that was in Christ (Phi. 2:5), but what is that mind?
Notice the phrases that characterize the mind Paul wants all Christians to possess.

1) Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit.
2) With humility regard others as more important than yourself.
3) Do not look out for your own interests.
4) Look out for the interest of others.

These four phrases are summed up in the life of Christ: a selfless humility that puts others above self.
Jesus and others is a winning combination for leadership.
