And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; [Eph. 4:11-13].
These are they which have set themselves apart to labour in the word and in the doctrines of our Lord Jesus Christ to ensure that the vision of the church are achieved. They head the various branches of SCIM. The Pastors are responsible for shepherding the members to ensure none is lost, except they that choose to be sons and daughters of perdition.
They ensure that the visions of the Bishop are executed to ensure that the church becomes a “going-church” as our Lord has commanded that we go and make disciples of all nations. They labour in the word and in prayer to ensure the perfection of the saints for the work of ministry. They are men of undisputed integrity and hardcore loyalist of Jesus Christ, the Church and the Bishop.
