Rediscovering Pastoral Ministry

Richard Mayhue | August 25, 2009

Current unbiblical changes beginning to overtake the church could injuriously mark the 21st century church if they continue unchecked. A growing number of respected evangelicals believe that the contemporary redirection of the church toward being less biblical and more acceptable to society will ultimately lead to a Christ-condemned church. However, by using Scripture to answer the questions “What is a pastor to be and do?” and “How can contemporary ministry be shaped by biblical mandates?”, the church can be revived and obediently realign herself with God’s revealed purposes for the bride of Christ. In this manner, it is possible to achieve a biblically balanced, complementing relationship between understanding God’s will for the church, engaging in relevant pastoral ministry, and preparing a new generation of pastors for ministry as outlined by God’s Word.
