SSOL Materials for Church Elders
All of the offerings found on SSOL could be useful for Church Elders. We invite you to explore the SSOL Categories of Learning page to see all that we offer.
Church Elders may find these offerings regarding church administration, fundraising/stewardship, education and learning, adult and older adults, counseling and care-giving, worship, scriptures, and spirituality of particular interest (please see a table displaying these particular online offerings below).
The roles and responsibilities of church elders can vary depending on the tradition and is sometimes connected to an ordained pastor, and other times held by lay people. The elders often have responsibility for the oversight of the church body and the spiritual development of its members, as well as responsibilities for managing the affairs of the church.
