Questions for DSC’s Elders?

2012 | by Trent Hunter | Category: Events

Our next Elders Q&A will take place on the last Wednesday of this month, September 26, at 6:30 PM.

Every important relationship includes some question asking and some question answering. As part of their leadership here at DSC, our elders are always available to answer questions in person, and once a year these men make themselves available to answer questions in a church-wide setting.

Since this is a Q&A, you are invited to submit questions for our elders to answer in the course of the evening. You can do this in three ways:

  1. Submit your question using your bulletin Comment Card next Sunday and drop that in an offering box.
  2. Email your question to
  3. Show up with your question on the 26th. Ryan will be taking some questions from a mic in the course of the evening. Of course, we appreciate your questions early. This helps us notice recurring themes and spend our time in a way that best serves the congregation.

Any questions that are not addressed at the Q&A will be answered through the DSC Blog or email.

Asking good questions encourages unity among our body and helps all of us pray more specifically for our church and its maturity in Christ.

To help you better pray for these men, consider Peter’s words to elders concerning the wonder and weight of their calling as shepherds from 1 Peter 5:1-5:

I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed: shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory.

Get acquainted with DSC’s elders by reading their biographies on the Leadership Page. Also, audio from previous Elder Q&A evenings is available at our Messages Page under the topic “Elder Q&A.”
