Pastors (and Ministry Leaders) in Training
Thursdays | 12:00n-1:00p | Faculty Conference Room
PIT is a Weekly Forum that seeks to address “all those things they (supposedly) never taught me in seminary.” It aims to be the most practical hour in seminary.
These days pastoral ministry and ministry leadership is more complex than ever. At RTSO, we have a desire to see our students enter ministry with the best preparation possible. PIT has become part of that preparation. It is a weekly interactive, guided discussion covering topics that may not come up in a typical seminary class, but come up in real life.
With over 40 years of combined pastoral ministry, President Don Sweeting and Professor Bob Orner will lead a guided discussion over a “brown bag” lunch and address key topics from their personal experience, with insights from Scripture, church history and best practices.
Topics will be posted in the beginning of the semester. There will be opportunity for questions, disagreements, and exploration. At the end of each meeting students will be given practical handouts by each of our facilitators. Occasionally working pastors and ministry leaders will be brought in to enhance the discussion.
Bring your own lunch and join us for a weekly PIT stop.
