BIG PROBLEMS have come from young starry-eyed preacher boys going off to an ifb bible college for four years, parroting what they learned, and then feeling they are "prepared" for the pastorate. (1) ANSWER #1 is to go on to seminary, gain insight, education, maturity and a little common sense, then go into the pastorate . . (2) ANSWER #2 is train in a University, getting a solid education in the humanities, philosophy, speech, English, history, etc. Next, go to train for 4-5 years as an intern with a strong pastor. Learn the Bible languages, counseling and practical theology with a "hands on" approach. Then be ordained and go with the full support of that congregation to the mission field, the pastorate, other areas of ministry. OF COURSE THERE ARE VARIABLES, but what is your thinking on our present educational training system for pastors?
