Gospel-Centrality and Pastoral Ministry

Limited to 13 people


"I'll help you keep the gospel central in your preaching, shepherding, and discipling in your ministry.”


Session Overview

Many pastors struggle to apply the idea of gospel-centrality “across the board” in their ministries. My strength is helping point leaders to Christ for their validation and motivation in ministry...

1. Why Gospel-Centrality? This session will lay the biblical foundation for orienting ministry around the finished work of Christ.

2. The Gospel-Centered Pastor. Pastors fundamentally lead from who they think they are. This session will deal with identity and empowerment.

3. Preaching. An overview of approaches to the Bible and preaching pro-tips on making the main thing the main thing.

4. Shepherding. Peter tells pastors to “shepherd the flock of God that is among you.” This session will cover what that looks like from the gospel-centered paradigm and offers some “best practices” for scheduling, administrating, visiting, and sabbathing.

5. Discipling. How do you help people constantly look to Jesus? If the call of the church is to make disciples, what should pastors be doing week to week to facilitate fulfilling this mandate?

6. Gospel-Centered Troubleshooting. This session will deal with applying our union with Christ to ministerial and relational issues that can cause frustration and discouragement – problem people, gossip, the slow pace of change, difficult contexts, family dynamics, etc..
