Larry Nelson Biblical Counseling Resources

     Note From Pastor Jim Osman

For well over 20 years I have counted it a privilege to call Larry Nelson my friend. For a number of years, we served together shepherding different churches in the Sandpoint area. Even after leaving the ministry in North Idaho, Larry has remained a dear friend as well as a supporter of the ministry of Kootenai Community Church.
I am very pleased to be able to partner with Larry to provide on our website this counseling resource to those who are sure to be blessed and impacted by his teaching and biblical counseling ministry. May the Lord increase his tribe and bless greatly his service to our King!

Elders: The Biblical Qualifications and Disqualifications of Church Elders

There are a growing number of churches today seeking to practice biblical church government by elders. But sadly many pastors and laymen alike would find it difficult to identify even a dozen biblical qualifications for church elders.

Consequently, Christ’s Church is often led by unqualified men (and women), and the results have been disastrous with both the shepherds and the sheep going astray. In this book, Pastor Larry Nelson examines more than 30 biblical qualifications required of anyone before being allowed to serve as an elder in Christ’s church.Although most will never serve in this leadership position, all believers should seek to develop these godly characteristics as we cooperate with God in the Holy Spirit-empowered sanctification process.
