Abstract

Part-time ministers in the Nederduitsch Hervormde Church in Africa

This article points out that the Polity of the Nederduitsch Hervormde Church’s has a definite background which can be described as Biblical Reformative Theology. It finds its typification in the Presbyterial-synodal church order. With special reference to the Presbyterial-synodal church order, the office of the pastor is seen as a full-time, functional ministry, based on the calling of God. Pastors dedicates themselves to their full-time ministry. The article refers also to the clause with regard to the appointment of part-time ministers. It concludes that practical considerations were decisive and not the principles of the Biblical Reformative Theology and its Presbyterial-synodal background.
