Co-pastors often share in the goals and vision of the church, sometimes filling the pulpit or sharing a word of encouragement to the body. Most co-pastors allow the lead pastor, which is usually the husband, to assume the business responsibilities, counseling, and be more visible in the regular duties of a pastor. We show our appreciation for our pastors when we follow their godly example. "Remember your leaders who first taught you the word of God. Think of all the good that has come from their lives, and trust the Lord as they do."

Faith comes by being in and around the faith community. Proverbs says, “He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.” The wise trust God because that is the wisest thing a person can do (cf. Ps. ). When you hang around wise, godly people, your faith will increase as well.
