Lay leadership development
LAY LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

  • Three technical words,

  • Lay - professional distinction

  • Leadership – position & function

  • Development - growth


Lay leadership development1
LAY LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

  • Defining and framing lay leadership development;

  • Lay leadership as a leadership category within the church with specific training curriculum certification and specific ministry office is a main line ministry paradigm

  • Mainline ministry orientation is often with;

    • Professional leaders,

    • Academic qualifications and

    • Ordination systems


Lay leadership development2
LAY LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

  • In the process of defining and framing lay leadership development the two common ways of dealing with the task are;

    • Organic congregational ministry training with continuum

    • Centralized Judicatory training with certification and licensing


Lay leadership development3
LAY LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

  • Both approaches have their merits in ministry, however organic congregational ministry training (ocmt) with a continuum approach works in the actual life of a congregation to prepare the body of Christ and position it at the front line for mission.


Organic congregational ministry training with continuum
Organic Congregational Ministry Training With Continuum

  • Organic – natural birth and emergence of leaders out of a congregation

  • Congregational ministry training – equipping and preparing of leaders done by congregations for ministry while engaged in ministry (not outsourcing)

  • Continuum – preparing for ministry as a non-stop lifestyle and growth in Christian faith


Biblical foundations
BIBLICAL FOUNDATIONS

  • Ephesians 4: 11It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, 12to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.


Biblical foundations1
BIBLICAL FOUNDATIONS

  • 12 to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up

  • Pros ton katartismon twn agiwn eis ergon diakonias

  • Katartismon - equipping, training, preparing, perfecting


Katartismon – preparing, equipping, training, perfecting It is a continuum of discipleship formation and journey!



Prepare god s people
Prepare God's People

  • God’s people or saints – agiwn

  • Saints or people of God are where we get the diakonos (diakonos) meaning servants, helpers, ministers, deacons, deaconesses, helpers, supporters, missionaries, care givers, contributors, providers in general Frontline Leaders.


Prepare god s people1
Prepare God's People

  • Agiwn - saints or people of God

  • The agiwon gather to form community of saints which is the church.

  • Wherever there are agiwn (saints or people of God) there is a potential to raise and prepare leaders (katartismon).

  • Agiwn + Katartismon = diakonos

  • Saints + Organic equipping = lay leaders


Prepare god s people2
Prepare God's People

  • Every ministry office (five fold office) and resource in the church is made available to prepare God’s people for works of ministry which is to raise leaders from among people of God. (Eph. 4:11-12)

  • Katartismon is an organic way of equipping, training and preparing people of God


Prepare god s people katartismon twn agiwn
Prepare God's PeopleKatartismon twn agiwn

  • The purpose of katartismon is to buildthe body of Christ.

  • Building the body of Christ – oikodomen (build, erect, build up, encourage, strengthen, edify, rebuild, restore)

  • Katartismon – is a core duty and responsibility of pastors, teachers, evangelists, apostles and prophets


Building The Body Of ChristOikodomen (build, erect, build up, encourage, strengthen, edify, rebuild, restore)

  • The body of Christ built in two ways;

    • Internal development – edifying the inner body

    • External development – reaching out and expanding


Building the body of christ oikodomen
Building The Body Of ChristOikodomen

  • When saints (agiwn) are prepared they develop into wholeness (katartisis) or when they get equipped for ministry they become builders of the body

  • The ultimate out come of properly and organically handled katartismon (LLD) is a body of Christ deeply rooted and richly edified for the sake of branching out, reaching lives and expanding on the daily basis.
