Matt 16:26 (KJV) I don�t believe that any further commentary is required on this subject. I understand that this amendment to the constitution was highly debated upon but, with fervent prayer all of those who were opposed to this, will understand that this was done to include ALL into the life of the church not to take away from what the church already has.

In verse 3 the word “archon”, Strong’s #758, translated “rulers” (KJV; NASB) or “government” (NEB) refers in the NT to Roman rulers, specifically those who ruled in the name of Rome over the Jews in Palestine.

Second, it is necessary because no one man has all the gifts necessary to lead the church.

As Communications Pastor, Daniel oversees the Creative Collective group, web development, and sharing the stories of the church. No, the decision was made by the group of apostles and elders. Of course mature men and women should both function as examples in a general way (Titus 2:2, 3-5). To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder ... [2] Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care... A meeting is only as good as the people attending it. Inskeep (1993) maintained, “the role of contextual factors in church growth and decline can never be ignored” adding, “it is clear that congregations cannot control their contexts, but they can control their relationship to their contexts” (p. 147).

During the 30-plus years I’ve been following Jesus, I have been a member of only three churches. (This has more to do with the fact that I have not moved outside the region than that I am exceptional human being.) Because I was part of the leadership in each of these three churches, I knew at least half of the people in church every Sunday. Drucker is a writer, teacher, and consultant. Maybe you’ll find something helpful and timely. These students should have completed and signed a distribution agreement.

"The standard of the golden rule is the true standard of Christianity; anything short of it is a deception. Failure to discern between error and truth leaves the Christian immature, and vulnerable to false teaching and deception. XPastor - XPastor is an organization that provides resources for executive pastors and church administrators. It can mean a “wife” or simply a “female” or “woman.” It is used both ways in 1 Timothy—as “female” (2:9-12,14) and as “wife” (3:2,12; 5:9).

Deacons, too, fill a New Testament office, one rooted in Acts 6. Technology use has increased within churches, worship styles have become more informal, the median age of the head clergy has increased “from 48 in 1998 to 53 in 2006,” and the income and educational levels of members have also increased (Chaves & Anderson, 2008). 37 Another study considered the mortality rate of religious institutions (Anderson, Martinez, Hoegeman, Adler, & Chaves, 2008).

As leaders emerge and are appointed, biblical standards are used, such as the requirements for new church leaders in Titus 1:5-9 and for established church leaders in 1 Timothy 3:1-7. The need for family ministry in our churches and communities is almost overwhelming. What has been one large report in the past is now three separate publications: “2010 Large Church Salary and Benefits Report” (this report), “2010 Large Church Economic Outlook Report” and “2010 Large Church Finances and Staffing Report” Megachurch pastors are a rare breed.
