The spirituality of the minister with reference to his task to equip

Although considerable practical-theological research has already been undertaken in the field of spirituality, certain issues still need further investigation. One of the main issues in this regard is the interrelationship between the spirituality of the minister and that of the congregation and thus the task of equipping the congregation to an intensified spiritual life. Key issues dealt with in this article are the concept of spirituality in the Pastoral Epistles, a pneumatological point of departure in investigating the spirituality of the minister, the actual source of his spirituality, spirituality and charisma, the interrelationship between the spirituality of the minister and the spirituality of the congregation. In this regard attention is also paid to the act of exercising spirituality by way of prayer, reading and applying Scripture in the minister’s personal life. In conclusion the minister’s act of self-investigation is also highlighted. In this regard the need for continuous growth in personal spirituality as a prerequisite for equipping the congregation for their spiritual life is justified and emphasized by relevant Scriptural passages.
