Summary: The church needs to know the Biblical view of the relationship between the pastor and the church

  Study Tools

I. The current conflict in the average church

- Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock,

- The pastors agenda

- Sometimes the pastor is looking out for himself

- The process of choosing a pastor

- The standards for decision making

- The lack of trust in the new pastor

- The deacons used to protect the church

II. The role and responsibility of the Pastor

- in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers,

- Hebrews13:17

- The pastor has a responsibility to give an account

- Ephesians 4:11-12

- The pastors role is to equip the Saints

- Pastors cannot do everything or micromanage everything and equip at the same time.

- For the work of the ministry.

- The pastor’s role is not just to minister to but equip the Saints for the work of the ministry.

- 4:13-14

- For the maturity of the Saints

- Mature Saints can function without someone over their shoulder

III. The pastors heart

- to care for the church of God

- Some versions read “Care = Feed

- Acts 20:29-31

- The doctrine of the church must be protected

- As the Barnes commentary reads: It is applicable not only to the act of feeding a flock, but also to that of protecting, guiding, and guarding it. It here denotes not merely the “duty” of instructing the church, but also of “governing” it; of “securing” it from enemies Act_20:29, and of “directing” its affairs so as to promote its edification and peace.

Conclusion: We all need to be ministry partners as the role of the church as a whole is to do ministry not just be minister too.
