This course examines the ministry of the pastor in three areas: preparation, responsibilities, and relationships. In the unit on preparation, we study a pastor’s qualifications, devotional life, and personal life. A unit on responsibilities analyzes a pastor’s role in preaching and teaching, worship, pastoral care, leading, training, forming cell groups, and special services. The final unit examines a pastor’s relationships with lay leaders, staff, work, and calling. This is a principle-centered study to lay a lifelong foundation for pastoral ministry.
