“Abandon The Silos” – Full Post

Abandon the Silos

While it is easy for any ministry to become its own silo, God has called us to a bigger role. We share the ministry of the church as one body, yet many members. However, what do you do when people in your church, members of your team or staff, act as if they want nothing to do with you until Sunday?

It would be unfavorable to have one ministry be placed over another. It is malnourishing and divisive to the Body. Worship ministry is no different.

You may have heard this said before, “those who come to church come for either the music or the preaching.” While this may be somewhat true, this is not the precedent nor ideal for church worship.

Each member in the worship ministry (as in any other church ministry) are gifted according to God’s plans for that person. God uses each member of the Body to serve Him and bless people through His purposes.

“For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.” (Romans 12:3)

We each have our work cut out for us, as God has proportioned. However, as the Body, we are members of one another, as we are members of Christ.

Like the power between the drummer and the bass player, the guitar player and the pianist, and the worship leader and his vocal team, we each have an interdependent relationship in how we contribute to another.

Thus, the sum of all our parts is equal to our contribution to our local church. As a team of many members, we serve as one to our Lord.

A greater beauty of serving others is seen when individuals support and contribute to other ministries beyond their own. This, of course, is accomplished when we walk and serve in one heart, spirit, and mind seeking God’s glory above our own.

Reflection: In what other ways has God called you to serve in your local church? How can you better esteem others? What are some things you can do to serve other ministries than your own? How can you open yourself up to God so He can help you abandon the silo?
