The function of the 5-fold ministry in Ephesians 4 is to equip the saints for the work of ministry. What is the ministry we are equipping them for? Expanding the Kingdom by making disciples, helping them to mature and equipping them to do the same for others.
In the one of the last posts we looked at 10 skills that you suggested are needed to equip the saints. Here are 10 more of my suggestions:
- Prayer walking
- Spiritual warfare and deliverance
- Spiritual gifts including healing the sick
- Finding a person of peace
- Luke 10 principles
- Making disciples
- What is a church
- Reproducible patterns of meeting together
What else are we missing?
