The Vision of Hillside Men
Transformation > Information
RECAP
The “restrictions” on
women are in actuality
challenges to men.
ACTS 20:17-38
Overseer = Elder = Pastor
Elders serve the church
by leading it.
!

Deacons lead the church
in serving.
When we talk about eldership,
we are really talking about
what Godly Men look like.
They are mirror images of
Jesus and are worth imitating.
We are seeking to uphold the world, to save it
from the curse of God, to perfect the creation, to
attain the ends of Chris...
Is it not a pity, then, that our hearts our not as
orthodox as our heads?.....It is a sad thing that so
many of us preach ...
1 TIMOTHY 3:1-7
Notice that this is not
a job description.

qualification is that you

aren’t growing in grace.
If you get this one right,
the rest fall into place.
