Good Assistants and Bad Assistants by Dag Heward Mills
A good assistant minister can be compared to a good ambassador. He does not reflect his own ideas and visions, but only those of his home country (senior minister). A good assistant minister can also be compared to a good wife. He must not only obey instructions, but also must genuinely support and flow with the head or senior pastor. He must not be an independent and difficult to control person. If you are not faithful with another man’s ministry, do not ever expect to have anything of your own. And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who shall give you that which is your own. Dag Heward listed and explained the Twenty-nine Ways of Becoming a Good Assistant.
