Discussion Questions:

Why is it important that Christians never get too comfortable with “the way we have always done it”?

Read 1 Timothy 3:1-13 again. Are the qualifications for elder or deacon any different from what God desires for all believers? How are these character qualifications exemplified in your own life?

What does it mean that Christians are priests and ministers? How does that play out in your life? Are there ways that you could be fulfilling those roles better?

Buildings, bylaws, budgets, or the body. Which of these four should the church be most focused on? Why?

Why are deacons important to the life of the church?

How does the role of elder differ from that of deacon? What might a church that does not have elders be missing out on?
