Both bodies affirm, for example, that leadership in the New Testament churches was multiple rather than single (Acts 6); that decentralization of ministry allowed each to serve according to spiritual giftedness (Eph. 4); that the relationship between leaders was akin to a conference brotherhood (Acts 15); that some leaders, not unlike our current conference area ministers, worked in the interest of a number of churches (2 Cor. 8:18-19); that a spirit of mutuality and of submission to one another in love and respect is basic (Rom. 12); and that greatness means servanthood (Matt. 20:26-28).

To some extent, it’s the difference between what’s urgent and what’s important. No passage suggests freedom to exercise control over other human beings. It oversees the financial health, the annual audit, provides financial direction; organizes the annual stewardship program, and communicates the church’s financial condition to the Church Council. Acts 20:7 - The disciples in Troas met to have the Lord's Supper. Once again, Alec Motyer summarizes it well (p. 40): How is leadership to be exercised?
