MIN1052-3 The Work of the Pastor

MIN1052 The Work of the Pastor (2 credits)

The Work of the Pastor is a study that focuses on the pastor’s call to and preparation for Christian ministry. The author examines the relationships vital to successful ministry and reviews the pastor’s rimary responsibilities. Based on the books of 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus, this course enables the students to recognize and apply biblical principles to different situations they face in a local ongregation. Specific principles treated relate to the selection of church leadership, the discipline of church members, and guidelines for church worship. Since the study focuses on the pastor’s call and spiritual life as well as pastoral duties, it emphasizes both being and doing. (This course has replaced MIN1083 Pastoral Ministries.)
