Exploring Dependence – Vocational Ministry
As we prepare to move to the third item on God’s agenda for our finances – Funding Ministry – it’s time to consider another question:
What is the relationship of a Pastor to the congregation? Is he their shepherd or a member of their staff? Their leader or their employee? Can he be both?
What passages come to mind as you think of this question?
Check out 1 Corinthians 9:1-18; Philippians 4:10-20; 1 Timothy 5:17-18; Galatians 6:6-10. How do these influence your thinking?
