Once a person has been identified and gifted to move into church leadership, what is required to train that person. Paul tells Timothy that "it is necessary" that an elder has a certain set of competencies, a certain kind of character, and proven managerial skills. To ignore the "it is necessary" is to sin, so how do we prepare people for leadership? While there is on-the-job training, there must be training before the responsibility is accepted.
