I know we’ve all thought it–I certainly did…what exactly does a pastor do? Most of the time this question is asked from the perspective of “is that all they do?!?”, but I’d like to pose for thought and discussion: “what are we supposed to do?” Read the following verses:

It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. (Ephesians 4:11-13, NIV)
