Stop Calling Yourself “Pastor”
How To Serve The Lord As A Pastor
The New Testament always talked about Pastors as a group of people. The modern idea of a Senior Pastor or a single Pastor is a violation of the instructions we have been given in the Bible.
The reason you should have several pastors is because the Pastor’s main responsibility is heal wounded relationships. There simply is not time for a Senior Pastor or a single Pastor to be personally involved in all the needs people have.
With that in mind, I want to share a few things you can do to begin repairing wounded and broken relationships without going to seminary or being ordained in a traditional Church setting.
If you want to serve others as a Shepherd, there are two very important resources you can use to get started. I have them listed below.
#1. The Book of Proverbs
The information in Proverbs is simple and practical enough to help you guide people safely through relationship problems, before things get ugly enough to have one or both people make the choice to end a relationship.
So read proverbs on a regular basis, and keep notes on what you learn about relationship problems. The best way to learn how to be a Pastor is to find some people having a problem and look through Proverbs for advice on that issue.
#2. The Greatest Words Ever Spoken
This second book contains everything Jesus said, arranged by topic. This book will allow you to have a copy of everything Jesus said organized in a way that makes it easy to search for information that can help people build healthy relationships.
Solomon and Jesus are the best experts on how to serve as a Pastor without attending seminary.
When God puts you in a position where you find someone struggling, take the book of Proverbs, and the Greatest Words Ever Spoken and talk them through the advice that Solomon and Jesus Christ gave about personal relationships.
