Seventh-day Adventist leaders must be spiritual men. No one can succeed or make a contribution of any value to the church who is not Spirit directed. Talents, experience, enthusiasm, hard work, and even education are valueless unless through them all there is the breath of heaven.
Every worker in the cause of God, irrespective of the place or position he occupies, must recognize the spiritual implications of his calling. Therefore, in selecting workers, spirituality is the prime requisite.
