The goal of restoration really depends on the person being restored. For some the goal may be getting guidance for being restored to a vital, intimate relationship with Christ. They may require emotional and spiritual healing but not necessarily a reinstatement to a position of leadership. For others restoration may include becoming an active participant in ministry and growing in influence. For others, leading a congregation or a ministry may be the result. For everyone, obediently responding to the call to participate in the ministry of reconciliation and be growing in the gifts that God has given all of us is the goal.
