1 Corinthians 12:28 NKJV
28 And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues.
Administration: Ky-ber-ne-seis
Understood as the act of setting and holding the course (sailing a vessel) Shipmaster, governing, to guide, navigate, steering

Administrators refers to people who have the ability to steer or direct the affairs of the church.

Daniel 2:47 NLT
47 The king said to Daniel, “Truly, your God is the greatest of gods, the Lord over kings, a revealer of mysteries, for you have been able to reveal this secret.”
Daniel 2:
Daniel 2:48–49 NKJV
48 Then the king promoted Daniel and gave him many great gifts; and he made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief administrator over all the wise men of Babylon. 49 Also Daniel petitioned the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego over the affairs of the province of Babylon; but Daniel sat in the gate of the king.
Daniel 6:1–4 NLT
1 Darius the Mede decided to divide the kingdom into 120 provinces, and he appointed a high officer to rule over each province. 2 The king also chose Daniel and two others as administrators to supervise the high officers and protect the king’s interests. 3 Daniel soon proved himself more capable than all the other administrators and high officers. Because of Daniel’s great ability, the king made plans to place him over the entire empire. 4 Then the other administrators and high officers began searching for some fault in the way Daniel was handling government affairs, but they couldn’t find anything to criticize or condemn. He was faithful, always responsible, and completely trustworthy.
Daniel 2:48-
Often In the Church We acknowledge Daniels gift of interpretation of dreams and down play his gift of administration..

Genesis 41:37–46 The Message
37 This seemed like a good idea to Pharaoh and his officials. 38 Then Pharaoh said to his officials, “Isn’t this the man we need? Are we going to find anyone else who has God’s spirit in him like this?” 39 So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “You’re the man for us. God has given you the inside story—no one is as qualified as you in experience and wisdom. 40 From now on, you’re in charge of my affairs; all my people will report to you. Only as king will I be over you.” 41 So Pharaoh commissioned Joseph: “I’m putting you in charge of the entire country of Egypt.” 42 Then Pharaoh removed his signet ring from his finger and slipped it on Joseph’s hand. He outfitted him in robes of the best linen and put a gold chain around his neck. 43 He put the second-in-command chariot at his disposal, and as he rode people shouted “Bravo!” Joseph was in charge of the entire country of Egypt. 44 Pharaoh told Joseph, “I am Pharaoh, but no one in Egypt will make a single move without your stamp of approval.” 45 Then Pharaoh gave Joseph an Egyptian name, Zaphenath-Paneah (God Speaks and He Lives). He also gave him an Egyptian wife, Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera, the priest of On (Heliopolis). And Joseph took up his duties over the land of Egypt. 46 Joseph was thirty years old when he went to work for Pharaoh the king of Egypt. As soon as Joseph left Pharaoh’s presence, he began his work in Egypt.
Gen 41:37-
Gen 41:53
Genesis 41:53–57 The Message
53 Then Egypt’s seven good years came to an end 54 and the seven years of famine arrived, just as Joseph had said. All countries experienced famine; Egypt was the only country that had bread. 55 When the famine spread throughout Egypt, the people called out in distress to Pharaoh, calling for bread. He told the Egyptians, “Go to Joseph. Do what he tells you.” 56 As the famine got worse all over the country, Joseph opened the storehouses and sold emergency supplies to the Egyptians. The famine was very bad. 57 Soon the whole world was coming to buy supplies from Joseph. The famine was bad all over.
Here we find another gifted interpreter (we should always take note when we see consistency in the bible concerning things like this)
We need admin staff who have been anointed to interpret our dream, anointed to share strategy in accomplishing our dream, anointed to execute steps , stages & systems
I. 37 verse: it seemed like a good idea
II. 38 verse: isn’t this the man we need? is there anyone else who has Gods Spirit in him...
46 verse: as soon as he got the Job he went to work!!!
55 verse: When the famine spread throughout Egypt, the people called out in distress to Pharaoh, calling for bread. He told the Egyptians, “Go to Joseph. Do what he tells you.”
57 verse: Soon the whole world was coming to buy supplies from Joseph. The famine was bad all over.

Luke 19:1–10 NLT
1 Jesus entered Jericho and made his way through the town. 2 There was a man there named Zacchaeus. He was the chief tax collector in the region, and he had become very rich. 3 He tried to get a look at Jesus, but he was too short to see over the crowd. 4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree beside the road, for Jesus was going to pass that way. 5 When Jesus came by, he looked up at Zacchaeus and called him by name. “Zacchaeus!” he said. “Quick, come down! I must be a guest in your home today.” 6 Zacchaeus quickly climbed down and took Jesus to his house in great excitement and joy. 7 But the people were displeased. “He has gone to be the guest of a notorious sinner,” they grumbled. 8 Meanwhile, Zacchaeus stood before the Lord and said, “I will give half my wealth to the poor, Lord, and if I have cheated people on their taxes, I will give them back four times as much!” 9 Jesus responded, “Salvation has come to this home today, for this man has shown himself to be a true son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”
Lk 19
I. Zach is the Chief Tax Collector in the Region: He was preeminent in authority over all the other tax collectors.. (he was notorious)
He was the Administrator For the IRS..
II. He was wealthy
Lk 16
Luke 16:1–12 NLT
1 Jesus told this story to his disciples: “There was a certain rich man who had a manager handling his affairs. One day a report came that the manager was wasting his employer’s money. 2 So the employer called him in and said, ‘What’s this I hear about you? Get your report in order, because you are going to be fired.’ 3 “The manager thought to himself, ‘Now what? My boss has fired me. I don’t have the strength to dig ditches, and I’m too proud to beg. 4 Ah, I know how to ensure that I’ll have plenty of friends who will give me a home when I am fired.’ 5 “So he invited each person who owed money to his employer to come and discuss the situation. He asked the first one, ‘How much do you owe him?’ 6 The man replied, ‘I owe him 800 gallons of olive oil.’ So the manager told him, ‘Take the bill and quickly change it to 400 gallons.’ 7 “ ‘And how much do you owe my employer?’ he asked the next man. ‘I owe him 1,000 bushels of wheat,’ was the reply. ‘Here,’ the manager said, ‘take the bill and change it to 800 bushels.’ 8 “The rich man had to admire the dishonest rascal for being so shrewd. And it is true that the children of this world are more shrewd in dealing with the world around them than are the children of the light. 9 Here’s the lesson: Use your worldly resources to benefit others and make friends. Then, when your possessions are gone, they will welcome you to an eternal home. 10 “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities. 11 And if you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven? 12 And if you are not faithful with other people’s things, why should you be trusted with things of your own?
Luke 16:1–9 GW
1 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “A rich man had a business manager. The manager was accused of wasting the rich man’s property. 2 So the rich man called for his manager and said to him, ‘What’s this I hear about you? Let me examine your books. It’s obvious that you can’t manage my property any longer.’ 3 “The manager thought, ‘What should I do? My master is taking my job away from me. I’m not strong enough to dig, and I’m ashamed to beg. 4 I know what I’ll do so that people will welcome me into their homes when I’ve lost my job.’ 5 “So the manager called for each one of his master’s debtors. He said to the first, ‘How much do you owe my master?’ 6 “The debtor replied, ‘Eight hundred gallons of olive oil.’ “The manager told him, ‘Take my master’s ledger. Quick! Sit down, and write “four hundred!” ’ 7 “Then he asked another debtor, ‘How much do you owe?’ “The debtor replied, ‘A thousand bushels of wheat.’ “The manager told him, ‘Take the ledger, and write “eight hundred!” ’ 8 “The master praised the dishonest manager for being so clever. Worldly people are more clever than spiritually-minded people when it comes to dealing with others.” 9 ⌊Jesus continued,⌋ “I’m telling you that although wealth is often used in dishonest ways, you should use it to make friends for yourselves. When life is over, you will be welcomed into an eternal home.
III. He Was To Short To See
The Most dangerous thing that can happen to someone thats a wealthy Christian is not to have faith...
Some things money can’t buy: He was too short to see.. Over the Crowd...
Competence:The ability to do something Successfully or efficiently
a) So Zach ran ahead, He discerned which way Jesus was headed and Ran ahead of the crowd.. ( he was a trail- blazer)
Does your admin Team have any idea where Jesus is headed?
How relevant are you?
How do you gage your relevance? by nostalgia, By facebook likes?
The Church is always last to see what the future looks like.. yet we have all the spiritual gifts
(car industry)
b) He climbed up into a tree to see him (efficient)
He was willing to take a risk by going higher ( what does your next level require)

a tree which in its general character resembles the fig-tree, while its leaves resemble those of the mulberry; hence it is called the fig-mulberry

The IVP New Testament Commentary Series: Luke Saving the Lost: Zacchaeus (19:1–10)

A sycamore-fig tree is like a short oak tree, with a squatty trunk and wide branches. So Zacchaeus has a high camera angle on the event.

C.) When Jesus looked up and saw him, he said Zacchaeus make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house.
Chemistry the ways in which we interact, combine, and change;
Zach’s Chemistry got Jesus attention which caused a change in Zach..
You can always tell when you have good Chemistry with Jesus in your administration because folks begin to complain..
d.) Zach wouldn’t allow the complaints of others interrupt having Jesus over for dinner..
(communication) requires sending and receiving
Watch this Communication,
I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold.”
Zach never meet or heard of Jesus before this day yet he knew exactly what he needed to do. He told Jesus I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold.().
The New King James Version. .(). Nashville: Thomas Nelson.
He was listening.. He was Watching…He was examining..

9 And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham; 10 for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
