Training Pastors in the Local Church

UPDATE (4/16/2010): This began as a series at Said at Southern, but the site publisher stopped publishing any new posts. Links to the original posts are here, but I am publishing the three original Said at Southern posts along with the remainder of this seven-part series, at this blog. This post will serve as the index for the series, which I had originally hoped to complete by the end of 2008. Well, it's already not far from mid-2010 and I have not written the final two articles in the series. I have run out of a bit of steam, having had major changes (totally different job as of Jan. 2009) as well as family, school, and ministry responsibilities. I do not know if I will be able to complete this series or not, but if you are interested in these remaining articles, feel free to check back this summer or fall to see if I have updated this post.

I am excited to be writing a series for Said at Southern, entitled "Training Pastors in the Local Church." I will update this post with links as new articles are added.

Hi Doug, your series on Training Pastors is rich stuff. If you ever get the time, I'd love to see the 6th & 7th installment in the series. May the Lord bless you as you continue to serve Him.
