In this article which deals with the offices in the Church attention is given to a few contemporary questions with which Reformed theology is confronted today. Apart from the questions which are identified the article also attempts to contribute to possible answers that can be proposed. Some of the issues identified as relevant in the current debate on the offices are the following: the view of Scripture, the view of the church, the fact of offices in the church, the question of office or service, the functionalisation and horizontalization of the offices in the church, charisma and office and the authority of offices in the church.
