Godly Leadership — God gives grace to be leaders in His church. Their role is to equip others to do God’s work, to build up the Body of Christ and to help them mature in Jesus. Leaders aren’t perfect. They are called “gifts” to the body of Christ in the book of Ephesians.
Ephesians 4:11-12 [ESV]
11 And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds, and teachers, 12 to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ,
Ephesians 4:12-13 [NLT]
Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do His work and build up the church, the body of Christ. (13) This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ.
