Listener Chip asked some follow-up questions to our recent discussions regarding the institutional church.  Specifically, Chip’s questions revolve around the “leadership” gifts in the New Testament (see Ephesians 4), and how they might play out in a less-structured, less-formal environment.  Are there “offices” that need to be filled with specific people at all times in the church?  And if not, what’s the point of those gifts even being listed?

Ray and Steve share their open-ended thoughts in response.
