Overheard at Booth 1: Thoughts on Training New Pastors and Growth of the Church


At Deacon in training meeting today

80% of pastors are deemed not ready or fully prepared to teach.

Perhaps it's because we are not training them effectively

What are the colleges for training like?

Are we maybe following Jesus incorrectly?

Another question: perhaps we are not training in our churches.

If one of the goals of teaching Christ is to prepare others to be pastors, perhaps the churches should be training the pastors and planting new churches.

What if there are not supposed to be Megachurches?  What if they stifle true growth, which is multiple, healthy churches, and not giant congregations listening to one man across a giant screen?
