    Abstract: 牧師、長老是長老會重要的領袖。除耶穌基督是教會的元首之外,牧師與長老可是所在堂會的靈魂人物,是該教會異象、使命和信仰的把關者,他們與教會興衰有密切關係。筆者對此深具負擔,預設領袖們的素質對教會發展帶來興衰,故此,撰文研究牧師、長老素質與教會發展的關係。
    Ministers and elders are important leaders in the Presbyterian church. Besides Jesus Christ being the Head of the church, ministers and elders are the key figures in their local churches. They are the gatekeepers of the church’s vision, mission and beliefs and are intimately connected to the rise and fall of the local churches where they serve. The author is heavily burdened in this subject matter and presupposed the quality of the church leaders will affect the development of the church, thus sets out to write this thesis to look into the relationship between the two, namely the quality of the ministers and elders and the development of the church.
    Logos Presbyterian Church is situated in Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia. As the political and economic center, Kuala Lumpur attracts many young people from all over the country every year to pursue their academic and career achievement here. Hence, it is within the reach of Logos Presbyterian Church to find knowledgeable and capable people from among the students or workers who settled down here. These people later became influential leaders and members of the church.
    During the early years, the leaders in Logos Presbyterian Church knew very well that there would be no limit to Kuala Lumpur’s growth and outward expansion thus set their mind on strategic church planting. Their meeting points have since then increased from one to ten; service attendees have also grown from one hundred fifty to over one thousand in total. Indeed, from the perspective of church growth, Logos Presbyterian Church is a growing church worth studying.
    Yet, what followed the expansion is the bottleneck. In order to overcome the bottleneck, the church changed its strategy to first improve the quality of its leaders and members. Once the overall qualities are improved, will then the church consider to plant more churches. The fact is, Logos Presbyterian Church has never lack experienced ministers, elders or deacons. Yet the bottleneck they experienced was related to the quality of the leaders. It speaks greatly on the importance of the quality of the church leadership.
    This thesis has defined the quality of a Christian as the end result of combining “the inborn physiology and mental ability of a person, coupled with the skill acquired through educational discipline and transformation brought about through faith in God.” The church not only requires the long-term commitment of quality leaders, it also need to continuously nurturing quality and disciple-making-minded leaders. Only then, will the church continue to achieve new heights and contribute to the growth of other churches.
    Owing to the constraints of knowledge and experiences, this thesis is only a humble attempt. It hopes to arouse greater interests among the ministers and elders to pay more attention to the qualities of ministers and elders in the Presbyterian churches, with the hope to bring about breakthroughs in the development of the church.
