Ministry in the church is a complex and involved calling. So is the whole question of who should be a public leader within the church, what the standards should be, how future leaders are to be educated, what they are to do, and what the expectations of them as persons are.

--From "Timothy 3:1-7: The Public Side of Ministry"
Trinity Seminary Review, Spring 1992
