Is Commissioned Pastor a separate office?

  247 views

When I was originally ordained as an Evangelist I was told I held a fourth office in the church, along with Elder, Deacon, and Minister of the Word. Through the title changes we seem to have lost that concept. I am wondering why we don't have a section under the Network for Commissioned Pastors that would provide training and helps to us much as we have sections for the other offices? It would seem that those charged with planting new churches and serving as evangelists in established churches would benefit from such help. I recognize that we have a place in the Discussion Forums that most often sits idle, but it would seem to me that we would want to find all kinds of ways to encourage those who are planting the next generation of churches.

Rod, I think your idea is a good one.   You could volunteer to be the first guide for such a network forum.  There are a variety of issues relating to planting churches, as well as to the significance of the role of commissioned pastors, which would be useful to discuss and come to an understanding or illumination upon.
