Hello steemains of steemchurch peace be with you all
Many people especially Christians conflict with their minds on the duties they are to perform. But let me tell you that in a church, the Bishop can also act as a Presiding Elder or General secretary depending on the type of denomination in which you are in or the christian organisation. Deacons are also regarded as assistant pastors and work in the form of caring for the sick, the elderly, the poor and also administrative work.
"So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, "It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables.
6:3 Brothers, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will turn this responsibility over to them"
What are the qualities one must have before leading the Church or any Christian organisation.. ? Paul according to the book of 1 Timothy 3:1-16, he listed these qualities for us. We need as leaders always read in other to be in line with it and also pray over it.
As Christian brothers how we manage our house gives clear reflection on how we are likely to manage God's house. If that is the case then the qualities of Bishop and that of a deacon should also be the qualities a Christian parent. One thing we need to know as a leader is we need to be responsible and build a reputation not only for those inside but for those outside. Can i ask what does people talk of you...??
Parishioners let us know that it is within our light found in the church may we shine and outside the church may God's glory comes. Never as a leader uses someone downfall to be your promotion.
Thanks for your time with me and I am @bigssam from teamghana
