From this, the ministry of helps was formed. The main purpose of the ministry of helps is to ensure that the church meets the needs of the masses since the pastor is unable to be everywhere at all times.
As the overseer of the flock, it is
important that the Pastor has sufficient time to study the Word
and to stay in prayer. Thus, the ministry of helps is merely an
extension of the Pastor that has been delegated to someone else
to lead so that no need of the church is neglected.
