Bishops are ordained ministers of the same order as other pastors, simply having been “consecrated” or installed into the “office” (that is, the role) of bishop. In WACOMBS, consecration of a bishop is to among many things to encourage the ministers who have labored in God’s vineyard, especially in evangelistic ministry and church planting. Also it’s a promotion accordingly to the organizations ecclesiastical order,” he explained.
