Elder's Digest is an international journal mainly for local church elders, published quarterly by the Ministerial Association of the General Conference of the Seventhday Adventist Church.

As the church experiences rapid growth around the world, increasingly heavy burdens of leadership rest upon local elders. This is particularly true in multi-church districts. The objective of Elder's Digest is to help, train, and support local church elders as they attempt to fulfill the gospel commission by nurturing their members and reaching out to their communities. It will do this by:

1. Addressing the elder's spiritual, professional, mental, physical, and social needs.
2. Reviewing the great Bible themes of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, showing how each one centers on the Lord Jesus.
3. Providing resources that will assist in giving strong administrative leadership in their congregations.
4. Giving assistance that will strengthen their preaching skills. This will include sample sermons, outlines, illustrations and ideas for preaching in the journal.
5. Providing instruction that will assist in the nurture of believers and new interests.
6. Encouraging leadership and participation in evangelism on the part of the elders.
7. Providing materials that will assist elders in supporting the pastor they serve.
8. Maintaining a simple writing style in the journal.
9. Including articles from the Spirit of Prophecy relating to the areas listed above.

Elder's Digest will be designed to meet the needs of all elders, but specially those serving in small congregations in multi-church districts.

Elder's Digest will join Ministry in being a prophetic voice calling the church to be faithful to the biblical principle that constitute Adventist truth, ideals, and values.

Elder's Digest will encourage elders continually to grow stronger in Christ that they may model faith as they encourage spiritual development in the flocks they serve as undershepherds.
