Are You Missing Leadership?

Jesus gave leadership gifts to men (Ephesians 4:8).

There are five mentioned (Ephesians 4:11).

Apostles

Prophets

Evangelists

Shepherds

Teachers

The purpose of these leadership gifts is to minister to and edify the saints until we are all in unity becoming perfect in the full stature of Christ (Ephesians 4:12-13).

Each gift is unique, but all are essential for finishing the work of renewing us unto Jesus Christ.

Does you congregation operate in all five of these gifts in harmony with each other?

Apostles pioneer, prophets reform, evangelists proclaim, shepherds love, and teachers instruct.

Are you equipped as a body to operate as the church?

Are you pioneering together, reforming together, proclaiming together, loving together, and instructing together to bring the kingdom of God here on earth as it is in heaven?

If you feel frustrated that your people aren't taking action, then perhaps you are missing leadership.

Go back to the basics and reconsider the structures you set up.

Are they inhibiting one or more of these leadership gifts?

If yes, then are you willing to tear that structure down in order to make room for the fullness of leadership?

Jesus Christ gave leadership gifts to men.

What are you missing?
