offices

Dale Cresap's picture

My word lists special offices of ministry as the apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, and teacher. It implies that these are held by different people. Yet most modern churches are led by an individual who is expected to perform at least three of these duties and perhaps all five. This is a burden that I did not assign and an unrealistic expectation for any person. It is not healthy for either the person attempting it or those under his leadership. Even those who I have called and assigned to be leaders in my body are also members who should fit in and interact with every other member. Every member supplies something, and they provide leadership under my authority.
