With regard to his wife and children:
• the husband of one wife (1 Timothy 3:2; Titus 1:6)
• He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church? (1 Timothy 3:4-5)
• his children are believers and not open to the charge of debauchery or insubordination (Titus 1:6)

With regard to his personal character:
• sober minded (1 Timothy 3:2)
• self-controlled (1 Timothy 3:2; Titus 1:8)
• respectable (1 Timothy 3:2)

• upright (Titus 1:8)
• holy (Titus 1:8)
• disciplined (Titus 1:8)
• not a drunkard (1 Timothy 3:3; Titus 1:7)
• not violent but gentle (1 Timothy 3:3; Titus 1:7)
• not quarrelsome (1 Timothy 3:3)
• not a lover of money or greedy for gain (1 Timothy 3:3; Titus 1:7)
• not arrogant (Titus 1:7)
• not quick-tempered (Titus 1:7)

With regard to his spiritual maturity:
• He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil. (1 Timothy 3:6)

With regard to outsiders:
• He must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, into a snare of the devil. (1 Timothy 3:7)


What a Pastor Should Do
• able to teach (1 Timothy 3:2)
• He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it. (Titus 1:9)
• (serve as) God’s steward (Titus 1:7)
• to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ (Ephesians 4:12)
• shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples of the flock. (1 Peter 5:2-3)
