1 Timothy 3:1-7, Leadership in the Church: The Right Kind of Pastor, Pt.5

This Lord’s Day we will conclude our focus on 1 Timothy 3:1-7. In verses 4-7, Paul lists three essential characteristics for the right kind of pastor: domestic consistency, experienced maturity, and a good reputation outside the church. Maturity manifests the qualities described in vv. 2-3. The places where these must be displayed are the church, the home, and the community.
