In this episode, Dave Harvey discusses why plural leadership, a team of elders, is so crucial for the health of a local church. He explains why he thinks the term plurality is often affirmed, but then also often misunderstood and misapplied, highlights the need for transparency, accountability, and group decision-making among a church's elder team, and he explains what he means when he says that the senior pastor should be considered the first among equals.
Dave Harvey is the author of The Plurality Principle: How to Build and Maintain a Thriving Church Leadership Team.
