Imagine a pastoral vacancy at a church located on a beautiful island in the Mediterranean Sea. You could easily be drawn into the warm, tropical, serene setting with endless blue skies. However, you discover island life is disorderly, and the disorderliness has crept into the church.


“This is why I left you in Crete,” Paul wrote to Titus, “so that you might put what remained into order, and appoint elders in every town as I directed you” (Titus 1:5). 


Identifying qualified leaders to oversee the church, even on a beautiful Greek island, must be a priority when putting things in order. That’s because shepherding God’s people well always starts with the leader’s godly character. What is the measure of the man who leads your church?
