It seems as though certain protagonists in the renewal movement, necessitated by new challenges and circumstances facing the Church, take their point of departure in the assumption that a Reformed ministry, structured according to a diaconiological paradigm, can no longer meet the challenges of today. This way of thinking is based on the shift to the Practical Theological paradigm, emphasizing the empirical methodology of the Reformed doctrine and spirituality. This article thus argues that a dynamic approach to Reformed ministry can indeed meet the challenges of today. Parameters for such a Reformed ministry are identified, taking into account that any form of renewal should be true to Reformed theology.
