Part 14 – Ministry Mindset
Ephesians 4.11-16

Ministry Mindset means… (two affirmations)

Leadership in the church produces ministers of the church (v.11-12)
  • Who are the Leaders?  Those appointed by God to fulfill the reaching and teaching roles of the church
  • Who are the Ministers?  Every follower is called to ministry and should be equipped for it
  • What is Ministry?  Simple Defn:  works of service that build up the Body of Christ
  • Why would God use me?

1.     Most of the ministry that needs doing is not upfront and not inside
2.     Your ministry will involve unique conversations and circles
3.     God gets double-glory by using us

Ministers of the church bring maturity to the church (v.13-16)
  • We grow up to look like Jesus
  • We are solid in our faith
  • We are marked by Truth
