When we ask what it takes to be an elder, we should not forget Acts 20:28-31. According to Paul, the shepherd does not merely keep an eye out each day to take care of the sheep; he also keeps an eye out each night to take care of the wolves. And by taking care of those, I am thinking of how David took care of the lions and bears in 1 Samuel 17:36.
