Is God calling you to lead a ministry? It may be that there is a current unmet need that has been a burden on your heart to see it accomplished. Possibly the ministry team on which you currently serve needs someone new to help coordinate and lead it. Or, you have seen someone you know in the church who is involved in several areas and you see a way you can focus your energies on one of the areas to take the load off of him/her.
This happened to the leaders of the first Christians. The Apostles were overwhelmed with benevolent needs in the church and were being pulled away from their leadership roles of teaching and prayer. We read where they selected the next tier of leaders to oversee the benevolence ministry for the church in Jerusalem. They said, “We will turn this responsibility over to them and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word” (Acts 6:3-4).
Some ministries are easily done by a couple of people. Others need a large team to accomplish its tasks. As you step up to lead a group, you do not have to do all the work. The leader is the one who is responsible to make sure the work gets done. A good ministry leader helps others grow through service and discover how they can put their spiritual gifts into action.
