The great cry in so many places is for more leaders and preachers. There is no doubt that this is the great need throughout the church. The question is what can be done by the church to aid the emergence of leaders and ministers? Jesus told the twelve to pray that the Lord of the Harvest would raise up more labourers and thrust them into the harvest. This is doubtless the chief means by which leaders are raised up, but it also implies that those praying are seeking to bring in more leaders. It is significant that the Lord enjoined those already labouring to pray. It is as they pray that understanding comes and eagerness to recognise God's hand in sending forth more men into the harvest field. This study looks at patterns of government and ministry in the church and seeks to highlight areas where the church can aid the spirit in the emergence of leaders.
