By looking at the book of Titus and inspecting the reasons Paul left Titus in Crete, Titus: The Man with a Plan explores the Scriptural Mandates for selecting ministers.
When writing this letter, Paul recognized it was time for Titus to stand on his own and do what he was called to by God. While Titus most likely looked up to his close friend Paul, in this letter he wanted to show Titus that he possessed the same common faith, and had the same access to the power and potential of God as he did. According to Cantrell, using this example can help us to set things in order and to ordain ministers.
