Is Ministry For The Professionals Or The Body?
Pastors are under a lot of pressure.
In most churches today, we employ one person (or a small team) to do the job of many. The Bible tells us that God “ordained some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, some to be pastors, some to be teachers.” And yet, we position pastors to be all of these things at once.
The church already has everything it needs. We cannot outsource the work of the combined church to one individual, no matter how talented they may be.
