Q: How do you have these talks, as a younger member, without making the elder person feel disrespected? Do we have a place to correct our elders?

A: The bible says rebuke not an elder, but entreat him as a father. Always be respectful whether disagreeing or not.

1 Timothy 5:1 Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren;

The bible also says that new wine cannot fit into old wine skins. You are not going to be able to change your congregation from the inside when it comes to heavy revelation and new Scriptural doctrines.

Leadership can change if they make the choice to learn new things. But if they won’t, you have two choices: pray & stay, or go & grow.

Elders can be corrected and learn new things, but not rebuked with a harsh tone. We are supposed to speak with our elders like we would our fathers, with a helpful tone.

However, when it comes to repentance for actual sin, everyone gets the message of repentance preached to them no matter what stage or age they are in.
