Roles and Responsibilities
Ephesians 4:7, 11-137 But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
*Roles and ResponsibilitiesDear sisters and brothers in Christ, it is both a great honor and a high responsibility to serve in the Church of Jesus Christ. I charge you, therefore, to be faithful in your ministry and devoted in fulfilling your tasks and responsibilities, that God may be glorified, that the work of his Church may prosper, and that you and those whose lives you touch may grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. (The Covenant Book of Worship, Covenant Publications, 2003, p. 369.)
