A body is only as healthy as each of its members. In this study, we consider how Christ our Head wants us to grow as members of his body. Over the course of 15 weeks you will learn:
- 9 marks of healthy church members
- 9 marks of healthy elders, and
- 9 marks of healthy deacons
The first two sections of this study are distillations of two fantastic 9 Marks resources:
- What is a Healthy Church Member? by Thabiti Anyabwile
- Church Elders by Jeramie Rinne
You will want to read these short, accessible books as you prepare to teach each week.
This study would work great in a discipleship class setting over the course of 15 weeks. Or, you could take one of the three pieces and use it with your small group, elder board, or deacon team over the course of a few weeks. May this resource help your church body grow in health: “Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it” (1 Corinthians 12:27).
