Dean’s Forum: The Pastor Theologian–Resurrecting an Ancient Vision

April 11, 2023 at 12:00 pm1:15 pm EDT

Hybrid Hybrid Event

Join us on Thursday, April 11 for this spring’s final Dean’s Forum!

Pastors across the country are experiencing a crisis of identity; behind the benign smiles and inspirational sermons and million dollar building campaigns and ever-expanding ministries, there lurks in the minds and hearts of many pastors a sense of confusion as to what a pastor is and what a pastor does. What makes this crisis of identity especially tragic is that there used to be such clarity about the pastoral calling. For centuries, the church held out a clear and compelling vision of what a pastor is and what a pastor does. In short, a pastor is a theologian. In this presentation, Dr. Joel Lawrence, Executive Director of the Center for Pastor Theologians, will explore what it means to be a pastor theologian for today’s church.

Dr. Gordon Isaac, Berkshire Professor of Church History and Advent Christian Studies at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, will give a response.

The Dean’s Forum discussion is free and is open to the public. RSVP is required for those who are planning to attend in person. NO RSVP NEEDED IF YOU PLAN TO WATCH ONLINE. Lunch will be provided to those who will be attending in person.
