    Great quote. Wells says al otof good stuff along this line in his essay “The DMin-ization of Ministry” which has been printed in various places. It may actually have been worked into the chapter you reference.

      I think I understand you correctly in this quote Mr. Wells. I have been thinking recently that if a pastor really understood that his basic function is the equipping of the saints to do the work of the ministry then a lot more pastors would be perfectly able to function in a bi-vocational or even volunteer capacity in the church. What I mean is, if they were unencumbered by the “managing” duties mentioned in the quote above. What say you?
