How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!

Isaiah 52:7

A FRESH APPROACH TO PASTORAL TRAINING

To be called to the Gospel Ministry is a great privilege. Notice the apostle Paul’s attitude concerning this in 1 Corinthians 15:10; Galatians 1:15, 16 and,

And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;

1 Timothy 1:12

Certainly preaching is a vital part of what most Gospel servants do. And they should do it to the best of their ability. Therefore a call to serve is obviously a call to prepare. But, preaching is only one of the many functions that a servant must perform. There is counseling, evangelism, and budgets, not to mention dealing with the minefield of legal issues today. What preacher hasn’t said at one time or another, “they never taught this in Bible College.”

It is significant to notice that Jesus chose men to walk and minister alongside Him for three years to “learn” Him. He not only taught the content of God’s truth but also modeled its application in practical ministry.

And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach,

Mark 3:14


It would no doubt be a boon to pastoral training to follow the example of the Master Teacher!
