What do we look for in a pastor? How do we determine who should lead? What is the role of women in the church? Using 1 Timothy and Titus as the basic text, this Self-Study Guide gives specific instruction in these and other key areas related to the local assembly. Youl'll understand more fully the requirements and responsibilities of all individuals, leaders and laymen alike. The book of 2 Timothy is an intensely personal letter from the apostle in chains to his son in the faith, Timothy. In it he encourages Timothy to wage the courageous fight of faith against all ungodliness.
