A responsibility of leaders found in Ephesians 4:12 is to “equip the saints for the work of ministry for building up the body of Christ.”
Is this perhaps the most significant calling that God has for church leaders today? There are many Christians who would like to be involved in local outreach, evangelism, discipling new believers, and church planting; and they desire encouragement, blessing, and direction from their leaders in undertaking these important tasks. In this message, suggestions are given for how church leaders and other influential people in the church can prepare, equip, and bless individuals who are willing to help fulfill the great commission.
