(1 Timothy 3:1-13)

Chrytsostom writes, "The church leader must be ’one that governs well his own house.’... For the church is, as it were, a small household. In a house there are children and wife and domestic duties, and some person has to provide order for them all. So in the church there are women, children, employees, and subordinates. As a man has in his wife a partner in power, so does one who presides over the church" (Gorday, 171). This is the relationship God establishes when he gives a pastor to a congregation.
