The Work of the Pastor is a study that focuses on the pastor’s call to and preparation for Christian ministry. It examines the relationships that are vital to successful ministry, and it reviews the pastor’s primary responsibilities. Based on the books of 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus, this course enables the student to recognize and apply biblical principles to different situations he or she faces in a local congregation. Since the study focuses on the pastor’s call and spiritual life, as well as pastoral duties, it emphasizes both being and doing.
