Developing A Biblical Philosophy of Ministry

Many ministry conflicts are the result of not being in agreement as to what constitutes a biblical philosophy of ministry. When the pastor, board, and congregation are of the “same mind” in this area, “maintaining the unity of the Spirit” is more achievable.

A biblical philosophy of ministry is a set of non-negotiable, biblical principles that guides all the choices and decisions in your ministry. Your philosophy of ministry should be drawn from a careful investigation of both the explicit teaching of Scripture and any implicit methodologies which can be gleaned from seeing how ministry occurred in the early Church. When you are able to define your philosophy of ministry in this crucial way, you will not only know why you do what you do, but how to actually do it.
