Using Mentors in Seminary

Using Mentors in Seminary

• April 28, 2008 • Comments (8)

Having a learning coach or ministry mentor is a great way to leverage your seminary experience. Our research on theological education as well as surveys with people in the field led us to make mentoring a significant part of our learning model. Many seminaries will involve mentoring during the last two semesters of their study […]

Lessons Learned about Online Learning

Lessons Learned about Online Learning

Five years ago, I left a residential seminary campus to start a fully online seminary from scratch, known today as Rockbridge. In my travels and discussions with ministers around the world, I discovered many ministers that wanted seminary training but didn’t feel called to leave their ministry fields in order to get it. Technology now […]

Seminary Time Waster #5: Disorganization

Seminary Time Waster #5: Disorganization

• April 14, 2008 • Comments (5)

A common frustration about seminary is all the balls you have to keep in the air at once. Seminary coursework alone can have you managing several multi-step projects with their own timelines and deadlines. Add to that your job, family commitments, and whatever ministry you’re serving in. It’s a lot to keep coordinated. In the […]

The Church-Seminary Connection

The Church-Seminary Connection

• April 9, 2008 • Comments (3)

A few different bloggers have chimed in on the disconnect between seminary and the local church. Timmy Brister highlighted a Pastor-In-Training program at Third Avenue Baptist in Louisville. In summary, it seems that this church is actually taking responsibility for the development of new ministers, and not delegating that responsibility to the seminaries. Way to […]

Get Fit at Seminary

Get Fit at Seminary

• April 8, 2008 • Comments (3)

Learn to exercise while you’re in seminary. I’m serious. The first time I was embarrassed of my Baptist (SBC) heritage was when we were identified by Jay Leno as the fattest denomination in the world. It was sad, but I believed it. It’s not just Baptists, either. Ever been to a pastor’s conference? Look around. […]

Seminary Evangelism Class Must-See

Seminary Evangelism Class Must-See

• April 2, 2008 • Comments (0)

This woman should teach a seminary evangelism class. If you haven’t yet seen this clip about this sweet woman sharing Christ with a would-be mugger, you must watch. This stirs me up. “Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season.” 2 Timothy 4:2 HT: Timmy Brister
