"The Pastor and Christian Discipleship" points us in several directions (which is appropriate, since pastors and Christian educators are usually running in several dozen at one time). We’ll look at roles and responsibilities of the pastor or lay leader in the teaching, discipling ministries of the church. You can anticipate navigating through biblical and social science models of understanding, teaching, learning, and faith developing. Lay ministers (volunteers) require nurturing, training, and guiding. Their involvement and your support of their education ministries are crucial in the faith community, so we’ll turn our hearts and minds in that direction as well. Throughout our travels together, you will begin constructing your own understanding of the Christian’s teaching and discipling ministry.
