It is a good thing to want to be a leader in the assembly (church) that is called out of this world. Paul makes that clear to Timothy.
This applies to someone who wants to be an overseer, who has other church leaders reporting to them. The word is episkopos. It is defined as an overseer, supervisor, ruler, especially used with reference to the supervising function exercised by an elder or presbyter of a church or congregation.
Paul has a very comprehensive list. I know I don’t qualify but that is okay.
God has standards and that is a very good thing. We ought to pay attention to see if our overseers meet these criteria.
If anyone wants to provide leadership in the church, good! But there are preconditions. ~Apostle Paul | 1 Timothy 3:1 (The Message Bible)
So what are the qualifications? What skills do overseers need?
