    All people are citizens but not all are mayors. The Holy Ministry is God’s unique gift to His people. A congregations called Pastor, following the Good Shepherd, are His under shepherds. They lovingly feed and willingly sacrifice self for the sheep. Pastors are not hirelings; they neither fleece the sheep nor by trickery “pull the wool over their eyes.” John 10

  5. So what is the status of Lay Deacons? I can’t get a Call but several local Lay Deacons are “pastoring” churches. Rev. Charles P. Collier. PSWD.
