Those in this school of thought feel that change is the only option. The New Testament does not describe a hierarchy of apostles over prophets over evangelists over pastors over elders over deacons over lay members. “Over” may not be the best word to use, anyway, for all of these are service roles, designed to help the church.

You can confront the "bad" issues by speaking with leaders and attempting to make changes. Her particular focus is to coach ministry leaders as they develop an intentional discipleship strategy for their church community.

As we start the 21st century, we desperately need examples of what Christian leaders are to be like. The Restoration Movement was not a purely North American phenomenon, and active mission efforts began in the 18th century. [5] There are now Churches of Christ in Africa, Asia, Australia, South America, Central America, and Europe. Ephesians 1:22 - The Father "put all things under" Jesus' feet and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body. Therefore the meaning seems to be that the disciples should not, with regard to spiritual things, have that implicit faith in any mere man, or church leader, which young children are inclined to have in their parents.

A group of elders, however, can become a self-serving, autocratic leadership body. In the end I don’t much care about the role of bishops at all. In 2 Corinthians 3:6 and 6:4, Paul is said to be a deacon of the New Covenant and a deacon of God. However, there are later references to deacons in the NT. Paul is an excellent example of the spiritual values that should characterize all church leaders. With the Holy Spirit guiding Christians we have the ruler ship the Super Apostles lament as missing.

Written in outline form, the book presents biblical evidence that Jesus Christ taught that men and women are equal yet different and introduces the key terms, arguments, and most recent research related to the complementarian position. Before the Protestant Reformation, church leaders (the bishops) were universally understood to gain their authority through apostolic succession via the Sacrament of Ordination.
