(Quote from Reverend Alton Garrison, Executive Director of the Assemblies of God U.S. Missions, during the 2006 Iowa District Council)
Many church HELPERS don’t see what they do as a Christ ordained calling and ministry. No matter one’s place in the Church, we are all co-laborers with Jesus Christ and therefore His HELPERS. Every move of God from the book of Acts forward could not have been accomplished without “every joint supplying”. Eph 4:16
Pastors and leaders try desperately to make up for the gifts, ministries, and workmen that are not in place. Unfortunately it costs them their own health, marriages, families, and ministries. The answer and anointing are in the Word!
Below is a short 3-4 minute video from a message God has been using to empower HELPERS all around the World. The HELPERS you need to accomplish God’s vision are nearer than you think. As you watch I trust the Lord will impart to you both hope and vision.
Our commission is to serve and equip pastors, to equip God’s people for revival.
A Servant Among Equals,
God has set the members, each one of them, (from the parking lot to the pulpit), in the body just as He pleased. 1 Cor 12:18
