Equipping, encouraging, and linking those who serve as leaders in Churches of Christ, through collaborative relationships, informative resources, and shared learning opportunities.

ElderLink is a place to gather with other congregational leaders to tackle some of society’s most pressing issues. Leadership can be lonely, which is why an event like ElderLink provides an opportunity for local congregational leaders to connect and share in the struggles and triumphs of ministry. The ElderLink team works intentionally with local congregations to tailor the program to that region’s needs and context, making the event timely and relevant.

The ElderLink Experience

When you participate in an ElderLink event, you can expect to join in communal worship, learn from esteemed keynote speakers, and engage with scholar-practitioners and other participants in breakout sessions that foster lively discussion.

Here’s what one ElderLink participant had to say about his experience:

Five of our six elders and four of our five ministers, along with our wives, commuted to ElderLink Houston. One of the most positive things was our ability to get away and take a trip together. We were involved in worship activities and had an opportunity to select from among the smaller breakout sessions. The panel on leadership models came at a really good time for us and gave us a lot to think and talk about. We have reflected on the principles and practical suggestions as we evaluate how we do what we do and how we can grow together.
— Bill Allen, preaching minister, West Erwin Church of Christ, Tyler Texas


ElderLink is not only for elders and shepherds! Ministers, spouses, and ministry leaders of all types can improve their leadership skills and experience much-needed spiritual refreshment.
