Shepherds after God's Own Heart

The church is under pressure, and not only from outsiders either. Pastors are often driven to distraction by people who think that the pastor ought to be the manager of an organisation and that the church should prosper under his leadership. As a result, many have left the ministry and churches struggle to find new marketing strategies to reach a world that now sees them as irrelevant.

But what if we were to see that there is a pastor, a shepherd who knows exactly what he is about in history and who is very good at it? And what if the church saw those who are called to be pastors as having what the Bible identifies as a noble task? And more yet: What if the church could stop trying to manage its own affairs and simply be ‘the sheep of his pasture’?

This Ministry School opens up the wonder of knowing that God, and in particular Jesus Christ, is the great shepherd of the sheep. It will also encourage those in the role of ‘under-shepherds’ to be fulfilled in their roles and encourage the church to be content knowing its true shepherd does all things well.
