The Gift of Administration is a gift that has been set in the church to help safeguard the vision and the mission of the ministry. This gift is crucial to the effectiveness of the success of the ministry. Without order confusion is released into the ministry and people cross boundaries and run into each other.
The Greek word for the spiritual gift of administration is Kubernesis. This is a unique term that refers to a shipmaster or captain. The literal meaning is "to steer," or "to rule or govern." It carries the idea of someone who guides and directs a group of people toward a goal or destination.
With this gift the Holy Spirit enables certain Christians to organize, direct, and implement plans to lead others in the various ministries of the Church. This gift is closely related to the gift of Leadership, but is more goal or task oriented and is also more concerned with details and organization.
