MEMORY VERSE: “Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.” – Acts 6:3 (KJV)

BIBLE PASSAGE: Acts 6:1-8 (KJV) (Scroll down for RCCG Sunday School 10 December 2023 HYMN)‬

1 And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration.

2 Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.

3 Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.

4 But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.

5 And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas a proselyte of Antioch:

6 Whom they set before the apostles: and when they had prayed, they laid their hands on them.

7 And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.

8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.

To delegate means to assign a job function or task to another with the expectation of getting the desired results. During Jesus’ earthly ministry, he delegated the evangelistic assignment to His disciples for broader ministerial results (Luke 10:1-2). The ability to delegate is an important virtue that must be found in every leader whose psyche is to raise new leaders and not to just maintain followers.




Some of the reasons for delegating are stated as follows:

(1) It is one of the means of raising quality and committed leaders (Luke 10:1, 17).
(2) It allows for an individual’s contribution towards the achievement of the goal of an organisation’s vision advancement (Acts 6:3).
(3) It helps the group leader achieve more. (2 Samuel 18:1-2).
(4) It upholds structures that are created to handle a specific task and check for efficiency (Exodus 36:1).
(5) It unveils the strength an organization bears (1 Chronicles 12:1-2).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: Students should give additional reasons for delegating.


Delegating is a very vital tool in leadership-building as well as the organisation’s success. However, certain criteria must be considered before delegating a task. Some of these include:

(1) Humility: The leader should know he/she is not ‘all-sufficient’ (1 Peter 5:5). The follower must also appreciate the privilege of being considered for such a task (James 4:6).
(2) Authority: The leader should release necessary authority to the follower (Matthew 28:18-20).
(3) Willingness: The follower must be willing to take up the task (Isaiah 6:8).
(4) Availability: The follower has to be available to run such a task (2 Samuel 23:15-17).
(5) Qualification: Skilfulness and exposure of the follower matters (Exodus 31:2-7).
(6) Reputation: The follower must have a good testimony among others (Acts 6:1-6).

CLASS ACTIVITY 2: Students should mention additional criteria in delegating.

CONCLUSION: Delegating strategically helps in achieving great success. No one can do everything alone. Leaders should, however, avoid under-delegating and over-delegating.


  1. Mention three reasons why leaders should delegate.
  2. What are the criteria for delegating responsibilities?


Sunday: Mark 16:8 (KJV) – And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.

Monday: 1 Timothy 3:7 (KJV) – Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

Tuesday: Deuteronomy 1:13 (KJV) – Take you wise men, and understanding, and known among your tribes, and I will make them rulers over you.

Wednesday: Hebrews 13:17 (KJV) – Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

Thursday: Genesis 3:22 (KJV) – And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

Friday: Mark 6:7 (KJV) – And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;

Saturday: Matthew 10:1 (KJV) – And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

ASSIGNMENT: Give five (5) examples of tasks that Church leaders can delegate (2×5=10 marks).


  1. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
    O how I love Thee well,
    I am happy, it makes me glad
    To rejoice at Thy birth.
  2. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
    Thy friend friendship suits me well,
    Both young and will sing Thy song,
    We long for Sunday School.
  3. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
    Christ was Thy first teacher,
    The Holy Spirit, great teacher,
    Does manifest in thee.
  4. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
    This testimony is sure,
    That God, the Father Almighty,
    Poured His blessing on Thee
  5. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
    Though the sun be so bright,
    Or if the clouds be black with rain,
    I’ll be in Sunday School.
  6. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day
    I rejoice to see Thee,
    Will thou pass over me today?
    Without my being blest?
