. . |_ Administration
The Chief Apostle, Chief Prophet, Chief Evangelist, Chief Pastor, and Chief Theologian serve as the spiritual board of the church. Together the aforementioned leaders are tasked with seeking the Lord for the guidance and direction of Missions2Nations as a whole, and the Bread of Life Worship Church, the headquarters church. The Bread of Life Worship Church organizational structure follows God's original model where God intended for the people to be judged by leaders who have a direct connection with God. This structure provides accountability at every level of the church. The Bread of Life Worship Church does not utilize a kingship or monarchy model, where one leader is responsible for the entire flock. God has shown several times throughout the bible, beginning with Moses that one leader responsible for a flock becomes extremely stressful and overwhelming for that leader. Also, a monarchy leadership strategy is not the most effective leadership strategy for the people.

- The Church Events Coordinator
- and one representative from each board: (Deacons, Ushers, Hospitality, and Security)
