Misplaced Ministry

Ministers are supposed to be herders but have become hoarders. They are supposed to be equippers but have become spoon-feeders. Our agenda has shifted from empowering God’s people for “the work” to creating such a dependency on clergy that they are the forever “work”. We are called as a church to grow, mobilize, and multiply but we have shriveled up inside our four walls and fail even there to experience the freedom and power of the God we say we serve.
