Diocesan Handbook

Administration is part of the ministry of every Christian who holds office in a church which is incarnated in an earthly institution. Efficiency, coupled with love and prayer, in this part of his or her work will be the exercising of a pastoral ministry. It is that love and prayer which will prevent administration becoming impersonal and destitute of human sympathy. It is that love and prayer also which will enable him or her to ensure that administration is always the servant and never the master.
