Chapter Summary

This concluding chapter of the book presents a number of building blocks for a new theology of ministry from the perspective of the Reformed tradition. In the first instance, these building blocks originate in the Reformed tradition. Ecclesiology and theology of ministry are not the most important aspects of Reformed theology, but they traditionally form a part of it and are connected with and result from the specific fundamental theological choices and emphases of the Reformed tradition in general. The most impressive example of this can be found in Calvin's Institutes. Other building blocks come from an analysis of ecumenical theology of ministry. The issue of apostolicity in relation to ordained ministry is an important lesson for the Reformed tradition from the ecumenical discussion about ministry.

Keywords: apostolicity; ordained ministry; Reformed theology
