In my teaching and experience, one of the healthiest things that can happen in a local Church is the recognition of gifted and qualified men to labor together in the oversight of souls. One of my all-time favorite bloggers/writers has done a four part series on why every local Church should consider this issue. Each part is excellent and I encourage you to take some time to think it over and pray about how you could serve to make your church more healthy in this regard. You can find the posts here:
