What They Didn’t Teach You
How can you keep learning throughout a life in ministry? And what won't you learn at Bible college?
The seventh part of an informal discussion about church growth and leadership between three experienced pastors: Ray Evans (Grace Community Church Bedford & FIEC Church Leadership Consultant), Paul Rees (Charlotte Chapel Edinburgh) and Michael Teutsch (Highfields Church Cardiff).
Some questions for further thought or discussion:
- If you had any kind of formal ministry training, like Michael and Paul, what didn’t you learn that you now know is important? Alternatively if your training pattern was more informal, like Ray’s, what may have got missed out? How has this affected your ministry?
- How do you make up for any deficiencies?
- How do you cope with ‘conflict management’?
