Many of them are presently pastors of local works. They are sensing and responding to a higher calling. Many have been operating in a pastoral context for so long, that they do not know how to make the transition. This book is designed to help leaders shift into the prevailing position that God is establishing upon the earth. This prevailing position is apostolic. Not only must leaders shift, but entire congregations must also shift. If leaders shift without their congregations shifting, they will leave the membership behind and the result will be a gap between the leaders and the members.
Because much of the Church does not believe in present-day apostles, many leaders who perform apostolic work have been identified as pastors. This is the title we place upon the leader of most local churches. Because of this restoration of the ministry of apostle, we must redefine the role and function of the pastor. With restoration comes reformation. This will be painful for many who resist change and cannot see any other way of doing ministry. We must challenge the concept of a church having only one pastor.
There are thousands of pastors who are not responding to the apostolic call for fear of what their congregations, or even worse, what other pastors will think. They believe that if they are absent from the pulpit for any length of time, the people will leave the church. Jesus clearly states that He would build His church and that the strategies of hell would not stand against it. So, why don't we obey God and let Him build His church through us, whether your congregation is 50 or 50,000? It has been said that change is the proof of trust.
