The church is made up of varying ministries, often organized into groups to meet specific needs. All of these ministries need to come under the umbrella of the overriding purpose of the church. Church leaders need to bring some coordination of the parts into the whole.
You'll find the biblical basis for such coordinating in Ephesians 4:3-16 and 1 Corinthians 12:4-31. The Word uses the analogy of the human body ... many parts, one body. Arms, legs, and other body parts each have their own function but cannot work independently of the others.
