Can there be administration that is specifically Christian? Does this pair of words have any coherent meaning? An article that seeks to help you grasp something of the beauty of the jewel of administration in God’s service.
1: The work of administration
Neither seen nor heard – a first definition – a second definition – exercises to try
'Administration SERVES every other ministry'. But 'Administration serves EVERY OTHER MINISTRY'!
2: The gifts of administration
The overview of 1 Corinthians 12 – gifts that are specifically administrative – more than one administrative gift – other likely conclusions – implications for today – exercises to try
'Is you are an administrator in any form, be encouraged! However others regard your ministry, the Bible rates it highly.'
3: The character of the administrator
Acts 6:1-7 – a more detailed person profile (1 Timothy 3:1-7)
'The fact that the type of person matters so much must mean that the ministry is a vital one for the health of the church.'
