A short post with some practical application of an often overlooked biblical requirement for qualified pastors.
I recently resigned from a church that we planted in 1995 and that I pastored for 25 years. It was a huge decision and, while knowing some things going into it, I also learned some things from it.
What are some important components in training men for ministry?
FTC.co asks Steve Bezner, Lead Pastor at Houston Northwest Church in Houston, TX: "Why do you develop relationships with Muslim leaders in your city?"
FTC.co asks Won Kwak, pastor at Maranatha Grace Church in Fort Lee, New Jersey: "What do you say to the pastor who's tired and wants to quit?"
The concern is not eloquence but the ability to rightly study, interpret, teach, and apply God’s Word.
How do you cultivate a healthy marriage in the midst of a busy ministry?
FTC.co asks Jared C. Wilson, Assistant Professor of Pastoral Ministry at Spurgeon College and Writer-in-Residence at Midwestern Seminary, what advice he would give a new pastor who already wants to quit.
FTC.co asks Adam McClendon, Director of the D.Min. Program at Liberty University, "How does pastoral counseling relate to discipleship?"
A pastor who doesn’t know what a healthy church looks like finds fresh air in every wind of doctrine.
