Change the Culture from Passivity to Activity

Ed Stetzer:

“We need to understand everyone’s role. When pastors do for people what God has called them to do, everyone gets hurt and the mission of God is hindered. God designed the church to act as the body of Christ.”

The question is, what happens when a local body of Christ is no longer able or willing to pay for a full-time vocational pastor. Can believers pastor one another without formal training?
