Pillar 1 – God’s Pattern for Ministry

Dr. Wayne Barber

We’re going to be talking today about God’s Pattern for Ministry. I guarantee you that there is not a single person in here today who is a believer who doesn’t want to be usable to God. I promise you that. You may not be walking after the Spirit right now, in the Spirit; you may be walking after the flesh. But in your heart of hearts, the heart that God gave you in Christ Jesus, that participation in the divine nature causes us to want to be usable to God, to be about the desires of God.

Pillar 2 – God’s Power in Ministry

Dr. Wayne Barber

Today, we are on Pillar number 2, and that is simply God’s Power in Ministry. What God initiates in His power, God anoints with His power. That’s what we want to be looking at today, particularly from Isaiah 6.

Pillar 3 – God’s Platform for Ministry

Dr. Wayne Barber

We’re going to be talking about the platform of ministry. What is that platform? That ministry is received from God, not achieved for God. Can I just ask you a question, if you’re like me, how many of you grew up the exact opposite? We’ve been achieving for a long time, haven’t we? Isn’t it awesome, we don’t have to achieve. God takes that burden off of us. We simply receive. We join Him in what He’s doing in this world.

Pillar 4 – God’s Priorities of Ministry

Dr. Wayne Barber

We’re going to talk today about the Priorities of Ministry. Really it’s one priority, but there are three things involved. True ministry is not a result of our commitment but it is a result of our surrender; and that’s what we want to talk about today.

Pillar 5 – God’s Purpose in Ministry

Dr. Wayne Barber

We are on Pillar number five, “God’s Purpose in Ministry.” And what is that purpose in ministry? That He gets the glory. That God gets the glory for His ministry.

Pillar 6 – God’s Picture of Ministry

Dr. Wayne Barber

Last week we looked at Romans 11:33-36. We’re going to pick it right up today, as we look at Pillar Number Six: God’s Picture of Ministry. What is God’s picture of ministry? The church as an organism, not an organization.

Pillar 7 – God’s Preparation for Ministry

Dr. Wayne Barber

Today we are going to be talking about Pillar Number Seven, “God’s preparation for Ministry.” How does He put it together now? Here it is. The church staff, the pastors, are to equip the saints for the work of the ministry. That’s what they are here for and that’s what pastors are for is to equip the saints for the work of the ministry.
