The Shepherd’s Assistants is a handbook to help guide church elders and deacons in the various tasks they’re asked to perform for the congregation. As the Good Shepherd’s assistants, elders and deacons work closely with the pastor regarding spiritual matters of the congregation. But some of these men may feel inadequate or apprehensive due to their lack of formal training in the ministry. This manual helps alleviate those feelings by providing the church’s elected with Scripture-based advice and step-by-step actions for handling certain congregational affairs. The author writes to ensure that those who serve in congregations are thoroughly trained and have a reference for how to handle church matters for the pastor. Pastors may also find it helpful to use The Shepherd’s Assistants at board meetings.
