In many aspects of the Christian life, including the governance of a Christian ministry, there is the challenge of keeping in creative tension, on the one hand, the fact that it is the Lord who ‘builds the house’ and, on the other hand, the call to ‘give ourselves fully to the work of the Lord”. We ‘labour in the Lord’ but it must be as servants of the master builder – following his plans not our own. Prayer and patience are as important in the role of governance as they are anywhere else in the ministry. It is important that the Board discerns the Lord’s agenda and timing and works in harmony with the mission leadership.
