Officers are leaders and are trusted with assignments.
An armorbearer was an officer selected by generals and kings because of his bravery, not only to bear their armor but also to stand by them in the time of danger. In the religious realm, an adjutant is one who helps, assists, and gives strength and support to pastoral leadership.
It is one who is able to consistently, willingly, be in place to be an aid to leadership.
This applies to all those serving in any ministerial capacity, from the parking attendant to the associate minister.
In order to flow effectively, an adjutant should not be a babe in the faith. It defines an adjutant as a “military officer who assists superior officers.” To qualify to be an adjutant, you must have a firm foundation.
Duties of an Adjutant/Armorbearer You may ask, “What are my responsibilities and how do I fulfill them?

This book does not address “security-type armorbearers”, as it is my belief that security should fall under an established “Security Ministry” for the church. It involves doing background checks on anyone who will be working with children.
~ Mark -17 An adjutant must also have a loving relationship with God.
He must be the center of attention and the motivating factor as to why one is serving. Your love for God will help restrain you when you want to go off on someone.
