Pastors Challenged to 'Ordain' Every Christian, Not Do Ministry for Them | Christianpost.com: "Dave Ferguson, pastor of Community Christian Church in Chicago, recounted to conference attendees a bold call he recently made to his mega-congregation.
Preaching from the New Testament, he told members of the church, 'You are a royal priesthood. ... You're a priest. As a priest there's a particular people or there's a particular place that God has called you to.'
The Chicago pastor invited those who felt God's calling to come forward to be anointed. A couple thousand people came forward, named the people or place (neighbors, co-workers, underprivileged children, etc.) they felt called to go and share Christ with, and were 'ordained.'"
Next up, comedic fun when these "ordained" people begin to start their own churches, deal with the IRS.
