Pastoral Ministry

Practical Helps for a Complicated Assignment

Fruitland Baptist Bible College offers classes in the Rocky Mount area on an ongoing basis.  Beginning on January 6th, one of the classes offered will be “Pastoral Ministry.”  This class touches most of the issues and responsibilities encountered by anyone who does this kind of ministry.

As you see from the list, the class covers a great deal of “territory,” but gives a basic understanding of each and is a great starting point to learn more.  If you are interested, please contact the Association Office for additional information.

Some of the issues covered are:

   -- The mission of the church.
   -- The pastor’s role in that mission.
   -- Personal devotional life.
   -- Family life.
   -- Time management.
   -- Money management.
   -- Leading by example.
   -- Leading in missions, evangelism, and discipleship.
   -- Engaging the culture.
   -- Common pastoral responsibilities such as :  

         -- observing the Lord’s Supper, funerals, weddings,

            counseling, and dealing with death & dying.

The Psalmist writes in Psalm 19 that God's Word is the only qualified guide for every problem we face in life as it relates to my spiritual life. God created us and knows better than anyone (even the experts) how we should be living our lives. Why should we, as spiritual leaders, counsel people to turn to other sources of authority for the answers they seek when God has promised to give us ALL we need for life and godliness through His Spirit and through His Word? (2 Peter 1:3-4). My brothers, God has given us a perfect counseling book which is applicable to every struggle facing mankind. The Gospel offers hope to a world that is lost and struggling in the grips of sin!

I have personally witnessed many lives changed and marriages reconciled, even transformed, through my own personal ministry of biblical counseling.
