Pastor Treptow takes a look at the historical circumstances that established the rite of Christian ordination. Although the concept of ordination doesn’t appear in so many words in Scripture, Treptow shows how the leaders of the early church used scriptural principles to define their practice since “Ordination reminded both worker and people of the important mission that the Lord had given to his church on earth—to gather the elect through the preaching of the Word.”
