We haven't had a Pastor for 6 years! The Elders have no desire to have one & keep going back to the Early Church pattern! Every other church seems to have at least a Preacher ,we have the rest of the 5 fold ministry apart from an Apostle but no Pastor! Yes we have Cell groups. & other meets through the week & feed upon the Word at home etc but I still feel & think we are missing out on God's true pattern of things to have the fullness of God operate? How can the oil from Aarons beard flow without a head (Apart from Christ being our spiritual head) down to the people? The leadership said Pastor's can burn out,yes but what does God think,any Pastors or ministers wives out there that have insight to this? Please any comments are welcomed,actually I ask anyone who could shed some light to reply,thanks.
