How do I demonstrate Competency 3. “Develop a biblical understanding of the philosophy that is to drive the ministry of the church and the guidelines (i.e. “house order”) by which each local church is to abide.”
- Units 3 and 4 are all about this competency. The project for Unit 3, Issue 2 (“Write an annotated summary of the relationships and responsibilities of each group listed in the household texts. Categorize them according to both individual households (a family) and the household of God (a local church). Follow Paul’s categories within those groups: for families—husbands, wives, parents, children, slaves; for churches—ministers of the gospel, elders, deacons, older men, older women, younger women and younger men, and women who assist deacons and widows.”) is intended to help you produce a demonstration of this competency.
