bradleebartlett When you work for a place like @midwesternseminary, you pinch yourself and ask, "This is really my job?" It's not all fun and paper-rock-scissors, but sometimes it is. Come find out why. #fortheChurch 2d

iamproverbs I don't think people realize the weight that a pastor holds when it comes to leading a church. I know the weight I feel when I have to PREACH, so I can't imagine how it feels having to actually lead and feed a flock on a consistent basis. Making sure you really study to show yourself approve, because you're not only risking YOUR salvation, but the salvation of hundreds, thousands, sometimes, MILLIONS of people. I applaud pastors for accepting this calling, knowing that you will be judged much more than the average lay member, because God holds you responsible/accountable for what you feed and live before his people.
________________________________________
Pastoring isn't as glamorous as some make it out to be. This isn't preachers of LA, it's a real life call to SERVE and be concerned about matters other than yourself. You're literally giving up your life to not only serve God, but others as well.
You are called to be the FIRST example in the church...the first to serve, the first to give, the first to live HOLY. You are in charge of covering people's souls, which means you not only have to preach and teach, but protect the flock.
________________________________________
When I read the beginning of Revelation, I saw how God was dealing with the leaders aka the angels of the church. How leaders were the ones God was rebuking for the paganism, loose jezebels, and unholy teachings that were going on in the church. Every time God began to tell John to address another church, he would ALWAYS say, "To the angel of the church in...". It's one thing for God to deal with US about US, but to receive rebukes on behalf of the WHOLE church, is uncanny.

As a pastor's kid with an inside view on the toil that comes along with being a leader, I'm asking you...no, telling you to PRAY FOR YOUR PASTORS. Whoever they may be, please hold them up in prayer and appreciate them for accepting the call.
Love you all!

  •   attheheartoffit That's awesome! My hubby and I are currently researching seminary programs for him. How'd you land on mbts? @briannabedzyk 2w
  •   briannabedzyk @attheheartoffit , we researched a lot of different places. My husband is an associate pastor, so we needed an online program that would fit his schedule. MBTS online seminary is designed for people in ministry. It was perfect for our budget and lifestyle, and we agree with them theologically as well. Seminary is expensive!!! MBTS was the best option we found. 2w
  •   briannabedzyk @attheheartoffit, he is going for his MA in Theological Studies. 2w
  •   attheheartoffit @briannabedzyk sounds like all the things we care about, too! My hubs is currently a kids pastor full time, so we need time friendly & affordable as well! We're non-denominational, so we've been looking at mostly non-denom seminaries. I need to research how much the denomination of the seminary matters. 2w
