e2: effective elders is a ministry born in 2009 in response to the increasing need for equipping elders for leadership in the local congregation. It started with four books on elder equipping, as well as video curriculum on “What Every Elder Should Know!” which introduces elders to the essential skills of leading a congregation.
Dr. James Estep is the Equipping Pastor at Heritage Christian Church in Fayetteville, GA, responsible for discipleship, education and ministry design. He has been in the ministry since 1985. His passion is equipping individuals for service within the local congregation.
Dr. Gary Johnson has served in the preaching ministry for nearly four decades and as senior minister of Indian Creek Christian Church (Indianapolis, IN) since 1990. Gary travels overseas for the purpose of training elders and pastors in cross-cultural settings.
Dr. David Roadcup is Professor of Discipleship and Global Outreach Representative with TCM International Institute. He has been in ministry for over 40 years. His passion is discipling believers and helping Christians grow to deeper levels in their personal walk with Jesus Christ.Leadership Seminar Purpose
The Leadership Seminar has been an outreach ministry of Manhattan Christian College since 2006. Each one is designed to provide practical information on current and future ministry issues facing today’s church leaders. The low registration price makes it possible for multiple people from the same congregation or ministry staff to attend together, i.e. lead pastors, elders, Sunday School teachers, church staff, and any ministry leader who relies on volunteers.
