Reporting Back to Antioch

Text: Acts 14:27

Background of Paul & Barnabas’ Report to Antioch

  • Antioch sent them on their way (Acts 13:3)
  • They had just returned from their preaching trip (Acts 14:26)
  • They gathered the church, not just the elders or a few individuals (Acts 14:27)

Benefits of Preaching Reports

  • Preachers are kept accountable — ensuring they are worthy of their wages (1 Corinthians 9:14)
  • The congregation understands the work being done — as they are fellow workers with the truth (3 John 8)
  • It helps the congregation make decisions about future support — funds are always limited and must be used wisely
