Delegates to the convention are half clergy and half laity. That formula has not changed. And in fact, the representation of every congregation by a lay person belies the claim that pastors “dominate” the representative process. Moreover, it should strike no-one as odd to see a lot of clergy at a church convention. In the Orthodox Church clergy is not above laity or opposed to it. First of all, strangely at it may seem, the basic meaning of term clergy is very close to that of laity. Clergy comes from “clerus” which means the “part of God”. “Clergy” means that part of mankind that belongs to God, has accepted His call, has dedicated itself to God.
Therefore, the fleshly predisposition to a clergy-laity model must be continuously fought by all who would honor the church for which Christ died—the “My church” of Matthew Addressing the need to reject the current clergy-laity model, D. Elton Trueblood (), who was a Quaker, went so far as to call for a new Reformation. clergy of the church to trust and equip laity to be leaders. Ephesians 21 God, help me to be creative as I find my own personal ministry and fulfill your calling in my life. James 22 God, we pray for the ability to identify, recruit and train laity interested in church leadership. 1 Corinthians 23 God, we pray for the non-clergy.
The laity at the bottom of the page do not hold the Bible, they simply listen to the Word of God preached from the pulpit. This was a nuanced and hierarchical way to disseminate the book and it reflected the unease Henry had with common people reading the Bible. Hierarchy and Structure in the Church. In the earliest centuries of the Church, before there was a distinction between clergy and laity, all the baptized played more significant roles than they have during the last years—including significant roles in the governance of the Church.

THE CLERGY-LAITY SYSTEM. The second category of Satan’s work is found in the system of the clergy and the laity.
Read the history of the church. After Satan began by using so many substitutes to usurp the place of Christ, he invented the clergy-laity system.
What was his intention in doing that. Does the Bible make a distinction between clergy and laity. The Greek word translated "clergy" is kleros, which refers to the inheritance laid up for all the saints (Colossians ; Acts ).Believers as a whole make up the kleros, inheriting forgiveness of sins and the power of the Holy ally speaking, the clergy are not a special group of elite leaders.
between clergy and laity. In this analysis, conflict between a pastor and lay leadership will be discussed. The conflict started recently in a local Korean United Method Church surrounding an issue relative to choosing a new pastor.
This particular church has been led by a founding pastor for thirty years. The church has adopted a system of lay. There is no outer court worship now. The separation of a privileged class—a sacerdotal order—is unknown in the New Testament.
The distinction between clergy and laity was suggested by Judaism, and human invention soon made it great; but it was episcopal ordination that established the distinction, and widened the separation. The bishop gradually assumed the title of Pontiff. The contribution of clergy and laity in this respect is to demonstrate that the Church community cares as a whole, not only the priest, that one can find in our Church a culture of love, unity and gratitude, that our Orthodoxia is also Orthopraxia, that we are a living organism of the body of Christ.
The Catholic Church operates on a hierarchy with the pope at the top and laity at the bottom. Despite the bottom-rung status, the laity compose the majority of the Church. Even though not of the clergy, lay people in the Catholic Church are still expected to strive to embody the teachings of the Church and [ ].
Question: "Is the distinction between clergy and laity biblical?" Answer: Neither the word clergy nor the word laity appears in the Bible. These are terms that are commonly used today to refer to “the person in the pulpit” versus “the people in the pews.”. The clergy-laity system is so commonly accepted that many sincere God-fearing believers have taken up positions without having first understood God’s design for the Church in His Word.
I realize that questioning the clerical system is disturbing to many who know no other way to conduct the worship and ministry of the local church. How this Clergy-Laity Divide works in TPM. In TPM churches, this Clergy-Laity divide is exploited much by the clergy who calls themselves as “Saints” and the Laity are called as “Believers”.
The laity has no rights in the TPM Church. All that they can do is Come, See, Sit, Obey, Pay and Go. Oh yes, the Laity can give testimonies as well. Clergy, a body of ordained ministers in a Christian church.
In the Roman Catholic Church and in the Church of England, the term includes the orders of bishop, priest, and deacon. Untilin the Roman Catholic Church, clergy also included several lower orders.
The Greek word kleros, signifying. The New Testament teaches leadership among the people of God, but not in a way that leads to the "clergy/laity" conclusion. The root words from which we derive the English words "clergy" and "laity" are found in the New Testament, but our usage of "clergy/laity" is far removed from the New Testament concepts.
Clergy. the dogmatic stratification between laity and clergy is a major reason for the current decline in the Church’s mission and influence, the arrogance of many traditional clergy who treat their congregations with contempt is a major problem that the Church of England seems reluctant to address.

The theory that clergy and laity are competing for "power" takes energies - the salt and light and leaven of Christianity - that are meant to be directed towards the world, for its transformation, and turns them inwards, to be consumed in sterile and at times acrimonious debates about church organization and structures and functions.
The Place of Clergy. It is this Orthodox understanding of the "laity" that discloses the real meaning and function of clergy. In the Orthodox Church clergy is not above laity or opposed to it. First of all, strangely at it may seem, the basic meaning of term clergy is very close to that of laity.
MEASURING THE CLERGY/LAITY GAP AND ITS EFFECT ON CHURCH HEALTH AND OUTREACH by Christopher W. Goff Five South Georgia congregations of various denominations participated in this study.
Each of these five congregations was administered a researcher-created questionnaire to measure the laity’s perception of a clergy/laity gap within their church. The clergy is a highly overrated institution. Indeed, reports on the value and necessity of clergy have been greatly exaggerated.
Many Christians assume, for example, that the most important thing in choosing a church is its minister, that a church cannot function effectively without a priest or pastor, that the first thing one must do in starting a church is to hire a minister to lead it.
Affirming Appropriate Clergy-Laity Relationships within the Local Church Clergy relationships with laity and staff within a clergy's congregation are one of the most sacred trusts we hold. Clergy have the sacred responsibility not only to avoid actions and words which could potentially hurt others, but also to protect the vulnerable.
