An event for elders, chairpersons and potential elders of CCCNZ/Open Brethren heritage churches, together with pastors and key emerging leaders from within our movement.

Is your eldership part of managing the church for Christ, or leading the church under Christ?

What do you, as an eldership, spend most of your time discussing?

What makes a person a good leader in your church family?

Come and join elders both current and future from our movement as they explore and discuss issues that confront elderships. Together, by seeing in Scripture how Jesus led, be part of reviving the hearts of our elderships. We will do this by engaging each other in courageous conversations, exploring practical solutions, building relationships, and strengthening cross-church collaboration so that together we can see the gospel flourish together in Aotearoa, New Zealand.
