Read "Ministry Education For The Global Church" By Robert Ferris

Bob Ferris has a recent article in the Evangelical Missionary Quarterly 52:1 (2016; 6-13) titled "Ministry Education for the Global Church." We're missing something in local churches and missions at home and abroad. Most people are not growing (pardon the pessimism) from the educational methods practiced in church. Something is definitely amiss. Folks, here's the money quote:
"Around the globe, millions of dollars annually are poured into forming and sustaining theological schools. Nevertheless, if information-oriented schooling yields graduates who are ill-equipped to disciple believers because the information they acquired (and largely forgot) did not change their hearts, we must do better. Two things are at stake."
Still, be sure you go and read what Ferris has written. You can read the whole article here. It's a must, must read!
