What is the job of the church staff?

So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers,  to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:11-13
            According to Paul, Christ gave the leaders of the church the power and ability to equip the saints (His people) for works of service.  The church staff must help the people do the work of the Gospel (i.e. going out to all the world and disciplining all nations).  Like coaches on a baseball team, they don’t jump on the field, but the know how to help others be their best on the field.
