Intro to Pastoral Ministry

What is a pastor?

A charismatic entertainer, a business CEO, an Internet personality, a marketable brand? In our postmodern society, we need a return to the healthy Christ-centred, biblical definition of the pastor.  This course aims to do just that: it is an introduction to the breadth of pastoral life, leadership and church ministry. It is aimed to serve as a primer for new pastors, and a refresher of the essentials for seasoned veterans. We will explore how Jesus is the model of pastoral ministry in his threefold office as prophet, priest and king. We will also outline the five key competencies of worship, formation, care, outreach and leadership. Our primary focus will be to look to Jesus, and our life of abiding in Him, as the ultimate source and end of pastoral life and church ministry.
