A great model for pastors...

Mark Dever has had a great impact on my life and ministry. When I was a Southern Baptist pastor who had come to embrace the Doctrines of Grace I felt incredibly isolated until I stumbled across 9 Marks Ministries around 2000 or 2001. I have also had occasion to visit Capitol Hill Baptist Church on several occasions and been blessed by once dying, now thriving congregation.

Jonathan Leeman, a long-time associate of Mark and editorial director of 9 Marks has written a very helpful piece on Mark's style of leadership. Particularly, Leeman highlights the ways in which Dever shares authority. If you are a pastor, you would do well to carefully read and re-read the piece. Share it with your elders and associate pastors. Find ways to begin implementing at least some of these practices.
