The Director of Sunday School, Christ Apostolic Church, Worldwide, Pastor S.O. Aluko has said to Ministers that no ministry or ministers can alone perfect the church.



Pastor Aluko who noted that no ministry out of the five-fold ministry is a lone ranger said that the five-fold ministry talks about the intention, unity, harmony and oneness of the body of Christ and the explainable dependence on Jesus Christ the Head of the Church and Holy Spirit the Giver of the gifts.



The Cleric stated this on Wednesday January 15, 2020 while delivering a lecture on the topic "Talent, Call and Ministry in Relation to the Five Fold Ministry" at Babajide International Ministerial Sharpening Conference (BIMSCON) 2020 organized by CAC Babajide School of Prophets and Evangelists (CACTS Ilesa), Osun State.



Pastor Aluko noted that God treats the church as one so He creates offices and appoints officers without partiality and discrimination, adding that each beneficiary of His gift must use it profitably for the benefit of the body, the Church.



"We should allow God to honour us, receive what He has given, use it to His glory and benefit of all others. Do not be carried away by anything. No pride, no arrogance, no discrimination or competition. The church of God is one body, do not be a lone ranger in the ministry," the Cleric said.



According to him, God has not created us for master-servant relationship, rather sonship relationship.



He also said: "It is not what you have done that will give you spiritual gifts. It is God Who will give it according what He designs you for. It is God that facilitated your being born again and minus Him you can do nothing even plus your education and connection. There is no child of God without an office in the ministry. A Chorister who had never attended any seminary can be a great prophet. It is not you that will choose where to be in the five-fold ministry. It is God that will chose it for you."



He said once you're called, you are given an allotment, a portion of the ministry, a responsibility in the body of Christ.



Pastor Aluko urged ministers not to envy anybody in the ministry, adding that each of the ministry offices has its peculiarity.
