The task of a minister

“The task of the minister is not to get people to do things, our task is to communicate knowledge. If we try to get people to do things we have to jumpstart them every week, often get them do the things they don’t what to do. The task is to, under the power of the word and the presence of the Holy Spirit, bring knowledge to people. Knowledge of the reality of the kingdom of God and the possibility to live in union with that reality.”

-Dallas Willard
