Pastoral Leadership Series

I just finished a Pastoral Leadership Series

A-Reviving the Church part-A-The Community in the 21st Century-Over the 50 years since I graduated from College, I have served as a pastor, social worker, and college instructor in sociology and have observed vast changes in our society which have had a big effect on the church, its members, and society as a whole. Since you can’t deal with a problem until you recognize it, this paper deals with the changes.
B-Reviving the Church part-B-The Family of God-The changes we see in society are not new. The church has faced the breakdown of the family, the breakdown of society, and the breakdown of law and order several times before. Our high mobility and rapid communication have not changed the nature of the problem, they have only made them worse. This paper deals with how Jesus dealt with the problem and how the church has dealt with it since.
C-Reviving the Church part-C-pastor in the 21st Century-When the church is strong and society is highly supportive, very little is required of a pastor. Like a ship in calm water, all it needs is a hand to guide the rudder and a few to help with other things, but in a violent storm, the captain needs all the help he can get. The pastor of 50 years ago is no longer adequate.

There will be a fourth lecture (“The Church in the 21st Century”) but since I already wrote a book on it, (“Rebuilding the Kingdom” by Lulu Press), I am redoing the lecture to eliminate duplication and deal more with things I did not deal with fully in the book.
