In Empowering God’s People for Ministry (ED201), Greg Ogden considers the concept of the “horizontal priesthood” of believers and their role as ministers to one another in the body of Christ. The course begins by considering what it means for the church to be a living organism and how historic approaches to church leadership have failed to empower believers to minister. Ogden evaluates various models of ministry and proposes a way forward that involves God’s call to all believers, the essential ingredients for life transformation, and the role of all believers to be ministers.
