Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Theological Education Matters in Church Planting

Recommended Posts

Theological-Education-Church-Planting-tg

The purpose of theological training is not for more people to put an “MDiv” on the wall. We’re not after pedigree enhancement.

Theological education should be about transforming the mind, renewing the heart, changing the will, preparing you for ministry in the church and around the world, and, ultimately, fueling affections for Jesus Christ.

We want to see men and women trained and equipped for ministry because of him. Seminary exists to see people deployed to churches—and into contexts to plant churches—all around the world.

But there are many different models and approaches to theological education and training. Certain seminaries aim to train people for ministry in specific contexts, while others take a broader approach.

Today we have Jen Charteris on the podcast. Jen is the newly appointed chief operations officer at Crosslands. Crosslands aims to provide excellent in-context theological training and resources for churches and church leaders in the UK, Europe, and the 10/40 window.
