About Admin & Support
When Jethro learned that his son-in-law, Moses, was trying to care for every detail of leading and judging among the people by himself, he gave Moses some very wise advice. He told Moses to select people to help with the task of dealing with the day-to-day disputes. He said, "Select capable men from all the people--men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain." Jethro knew that Moses would only wear himself out if he continued his attempt to lead without help (Exodus chapter 18).

In the days of the early church, when a clamor arose over service to widows, the Twelve realized that administrative help was needed. They knew that if they allowed themselves to become too entangled in the daily details, they would not be able to fulfill their call to prayer and the ministry of the Word. (See Acts chapter 6)

From looking at these passages and others, it is easy to see why The Head of The Church thought it important to place within the church those with administrative gifts. I believe that it is God’s will that every local church body contain members that have been blessed with this gift (I Corinthians 12:28).

Our goal in providing these pages is to make resources available to the members of Christ’s body that carry the responsibility of administration.
