This unique ministry is referred to in 1 Corinthians 12:28, “And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondly prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healing, helps, governments, diversities of tongues”. It can be seen that the Ministry of Helps is a high calling.
The word Helps is the Greek word antilepsis or antilempsis, which means “a laying hold of so as to support”. This is a gift set in the Church by God and these tasks are just as important as other gifts, and the rewards are based on the degree of faithfulness. The ministry therefore requires ultimate commitment which begins by being faithful in small things. There is also great level of anointing that comes with this ministry; one that gives joy, happiness, strength, understanding and the ability to carry out the plan of God for the church.
