GIFT 4 Pastors

GIFT 4 Teachers

Teachers to teach the principles, values, and the Word of God in its purest form.

Teachers are meek and patient with their students. Teachers teach, not beat others with a book over their heads. They introduce principles and values, and leave it up to the person, to practice what they have learned.


Purpose of the Gift, is to use it.

For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.

That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.
Ephesians 4:15

Just as infants are developed into toddlers, children, teenagers, then adults, so are spiritual children of God.
