Ortberg on Calling

Ortberg on Calling

• March 5, 2008 • Comments (2)

John Ortberg just published an article exploring the idea of the “call” to ministry. I have been a pastor for a long time now. When I was ordained in the Baptist church, one of the questions I knew was coming was, “Tell us about your ‘call.’” In our tradition, if you became a pastor, you […]

“Learn to…” Series, Part three: Learn to Submit to Authority You will always be under someone’s authority. Always. Even if you plant the next megachurch, lead a staff of hundreds, and have tens of thousands flocking to hear you preach every weekend, you will still be under authority.

Sobering Quote

From The Reformed Reader: “Sometimes seminarians complain that the seminary’s expectations of them are too demanding, that the course is too difficult, or that it is placing academic burdens upon them that they cannot bear.  Perhaps they feel that their sincerity and their sense of vocation are enough to sustain them in their ministry.  They […]

Learn to Share Your Faith

Learn to Share Your Faith

• February 25, 2008 • Comments (1)

When I was in seminary, I didn’t share my faith much. Most of the time I was pretty nervous about it. Part of this was a horrible misconception about evangelism, and part was the reality that I had not grown comfortable with who I was in Christ. There were plenty of others like me in […]
