THE MANAGEMENT OF THE LOCAL CHURCH

A BRIEF NOTE:


  • EVERY CHURCH IN EVERY AGE HAS EXPERIENCED THE LOST OF A PASTOR, PASTORAL STAFF, AND CHURCH STAFF. OUR CHURCH HAS LOST THREE PREACHERS AND CHURCH STAFF WHO HAVE LEAD THIS CHURCH. AND EACH MEMBER OF OUR CHURCH HAS REACTED TO THE CHANGE IN A DIFFERENT MANNER. AND WITH EACH LOST, THE CHURCH HAS BEEN EFFECTED.

  • EVERY CHURCH MEMBER HAS EXPERIENCE HURT, (to cause mental pain to; offend or grieve): BY EVENTS THAT TAKE PLACE IN THE CHURCH.

  • THE DIFFERENCE IS HOW YOU WEATHER "GUSTAV STORM OR HURRICANE".

  • HAVING THE WISDOM HOW TO REACT AND HELP IN THESE EVENTS TAKES THE GRACE OF CHRIST.

  • HOW TO HAVE THE WISDOM TO PASTOR A HURTING CHURCH BODY TAKES THE WISDOM OF CHRIST, THAT ONLY HE CAN GIVE US TO DO AND SAY.
