In response to the previous comment, I would say that there is another way. We need to focus on training…
Lutheran CORE hosted the first phase of a Pastoral Formation Summit on June 21, 2017 at Grand View University in Des Moines with ten invited participants from four different Lutheran church bodies.
We wrestled with this question: How can we best raise up, nurture, and support a whole new generation of Lutheran pastors who will be Biblical and confessional in their theology and evangelistic/outreach-oriented in their perspective and practice?
- We are very grateful to all the friends of Lutheran CORE who prayed for the gathering.
- We also wish to thank all those who have given a gift in support of this event.
- We pray that God will use this summit on pastoral formation, as well as the next two phases being planned by our board, to begin a new movement of raising up pastors who know, love, value, believe, and obey the Bible and who are committed to helping people come into a faith relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
