Ruling elders workbooks from the Being Reformed: Faith Seeking Understanding series are now available from Congregational Ministries Publishing, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

Ruling Elders: Workbook One: Formation guides newly appointed leaders through the discernment process and helps them come to terms with election to office, preparation for ordered ministry, ordination, and installation as a ruling elder on the session. It may be used as a ready reference for session reflection, or session members can use it to inform their ongoing ministry. Contributors are Susan R. Andrews, Vernon Broyles, Ronald P. Byars, Cynthia Campbell, David Cortés-Fuentes, Andy Dreitcer, Charles Easley, Brian Ellison, Eugenia Gamble, Sherron George, Houston Hodges, Clifton Kirkpatrick, Thomas G. Long, Jack Rogers, Charles Spencer, Vera White, and Douglas Wilson.

Ruling Elders: Workbook Two: Transformation introduces six aspects of becoming a transformational leader: embracing change and discomfort, practicing spiritual discernment, approaching work as worship, keeping the Sabbath, practicing and promoting spiritual disciplines, and committing to self-awareness.

Both Ruling Elders workbooks may be used in different ways: as a self-guided study, as a group study, and as a ready reference for session reflection.

Being Reformed: Faith Seeking Understanding is a series of biblically based studies that provides adults with a foundational understanding of the Reformed faith. Studies are written by well-known and respected scholars and feature Scripture, prayer, in-depth commentary, and questions for reflection. Each study addresses its subject from a Reformed theological perspective.
