Recognize this principle - Consider: Acts 6 -Tale About Deacons or Having Permission to Act on Granted Authority. As pastor, Peter knew he was not called to do a deacon’s job. Therefore, he assigned others to do the task.“Pastor, we are out of toilet paper! You’ve got to do something!”When you see a need in the church, do not automatically rely on the pastor to handle it. Either propose a plan to the pastor or find a way to meet the need. In church culture, democratically-minded people resist a hierarchy of authority; they want a flat structure where everyone is of the same rank. But as the workload and duties increase, then people create a structural hierarchy.Whatever context you serve in, you must find an appropriate structural hierarchy. By collaborating and developing a team reflex, your team can handle contingencies.
The principle of Power Distributed, Power Multiplied (our power to act on granted authority).
