Item description for Meetings That Work: A Guide to Effective Elders' Meetings by Alexander Strauch...

What we've heard about elders' meetings makes us cringe. Trivial agendas, power struggles, apathy, and weak leadership. Most claim the biggest challenge to effective shepherding is learning to work together. But it doesn't have to be that way! The work of the elders is too important to be conducted ineffectively. Rather, their spiritual strength and wise leadership should be driving the spiritual growth of the church. And it all starts with the meetings. Meetings That Work will help you bring vitality to your meetings and strength to your relationships as you work through the storms and struggles of normal church life together (worship wars, church discipline, doctrinal disputes, and so on). Short and practical, this book will lead to immediate improvements in your elder meetings.

Reviews - What do customers think about Meetings That Work: A Guide to Effective Elders' Meetings?

Brief, but includes helpful insights  Apr 15, 2010
This isn't the must read that the author's "Biblical Eldership" is, but it's helpful in its own right. The concise nature of this book will be welcome to many busy elders. The reader may not find much that is brand new revelation regarding the elders' ministry, but he will benefit from the wise insights that Strauch shares. This is much more than a sanctified version of Robert's Rules of Orders. The author discusses the necessity of elders being spiritually qualified, why active participation of each elder is crucial, the right---and wrong---ways to interact with one another, confidentiality, how to make meetings effective and efficient, how to make sure you stay on track and end on time, the setting and frequency of meetings, how to prioritize and handle surprise issues, how to incorporate and train new elders in your meetings, etc. He provides a sample meeting agenda and prayer guide that can be used as templates. As with other books dealing with practical issues related to eldership, you may not agree with each principle or insight, but you can use this little book to trigger your own thinking and to help you fine-tune your elders' meetings. Recommended.
