Introduction Pastor Moses J. Taylor, Sr.
Introduction of Pastor Moses James Taylor, Sr. As a minister over 21 years, I have struggled with all of
the issues of pastoral ministry, including a passion to grow a slow-growing church. I began my first
pastorate with a crowd of 10 people. After almost eight months of hard labor the church had grown to a
comfortable 35 in weekend attendance. I spent those years, like most pastors, trying to figure out how to
advance and grow the church. I devoured countless church growth books and attended conferences from
one end of the country to the other end. Eventually a pattern began to emerge that affected the way that I
viewed and conducted ministry. I came to understand that the ministries of the church were essentially
delivery systems of God’s effectiveness. I realized that a large part of being a pastor meant that I was
responsible to develop an empower people around me to develop effective ministries that connected and
lead them in the words of God. The biblical example, for this is found in Ephesians 4:12 where the job of
the pastor is defined as quoted; equipping Christians so that they can do the work of the ministry.
Equipping includes everything from new ministry development, to vision casting, to recruiting, to training
and to educate man and woman into ministry. This is the unique function of the pastor.
