Ephesians 4:11–16 (NKJV) – 11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

The Purpose Of Pastoral Ministry
Equipping the Saints for Ministry (Didache or Teacher)
Edifying the Body of Christ
You Are Valuable to the Kingdom
No church can succeed as a one-man show
No one-man show can survive for long
If I can raise up leaders and ministers, we can grow a church
If you take up the mantle of ministry, we can change a community
KCOG, It’s Time To Go!
God gave the church Ministers to equip the saints and build up the body of Christ.
Yet every individual is valuable to the Kingdom of God.
