Equip

One of the primary purposes of leadership is to equip and build up the church. Leaders are called to teach and to lead by example. This means that leaders cannot live isolated lives from the people to whom they minister.

“He is the One who gave these gifts ot the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and to build up the church.” (Ephesians 4:11,12; NLT)

“Care for the flock of God entrusted to you. Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly – not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God. Don’t lord it over the people assigned to your care, but lead them by your good example.” (1 Peter 5:2-3; NLT)

“Be an example to all believers in what you teach, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.” (1 Tim. 4:12; NLT)
