The Faster Pastor  Continuing Education

The Importance of Continuing Education


Stop reading, stop leading. 

I honestly believe that. After all, how can you encourage God's people to keep growing in their faith if you refuse to keep growing in your own. Read the Bible. That should be obvious, but it isn't. Read it not just as a professional, but as a proud sinner in need of the law to lead you to repentance and as a crushed sinner to lead you to the cross to find comfort and peace, joy and your motivation to serve again and again. 

Read other stuff too.
