The apostles and prophets laid the groundwork for the Church’s foundation, with Jesus Christ serving as its main cornerstone (Matt. 16:18; 1 Cor. 3:11; etc. ). Apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers are all positions of authority given to the Church by Jesus himself (Eph. 4:11), and the power and special gifts of the Holy Spirit were given to make the work possible (1 Cor. 12:7-11).
Church administration is the structure and direction that makes it possible for the Church to function well and with a mission. Although we occasionally must behave as if it were a business forum, the Church has a global mission and has been called to be the hands and feet of Jesus. By monitoring the daily operations, a Church’s administrator ensures the efficient and smooth operation of the Church. The Church will have a difficult time carrying out God’s mission without administration and leadership.
Titus 1:5 states, “This is why I left you in Crete so that you might order what is left, and appoint elders in every town as I directed you.”
Regardless of whether you are the pastor or a regular attendee, you have a crucial job to do in your neighborhood church.
