Administration enables the Body of Christ to function smoothly so that all it’s parts work together in love protected from temptations and guided by the Holy Spirit. ¬†Administration ensures justice so that all parts of the body are cared for, no part is excluded and the voices of each part are heard. Administration helps accomplish the Vision of God for a local congregation or Christian organization using the gifts God has given to them.
