Organizing around professionals

Unfortunately, we have a tendency to overlook God’s plan for people when we organize churches around professionals. We single out certain people who seem especially gifted and we craft the community of faith around them. Everything we do is dependent on their speaking ability, organizational aptitude, and creative skill. But the ministry of making disciples was not intended for professionals alone; it was intended for the whole people of God.
