A typical pastor preaches and shepherds a lot. But pastoring in a pursueGOD network church is a little different.

Talking Points:

  • The Bible teaches that the pastor’s primary role is equipping regular people to do the ministry. That means creating a discipleship culture. Ephesians 4:11-12
  • The pursueGOD tools are designed to help pastors do their job. Learn more about how the strategy works at pursueGOD.org.
  • The best way to start doing your job as a pastor is to start discipling a handful of people with the PG tools. Once you’ve brought them through The Pursuit, they’ll be ready to go out and make disciples.
  • Good pastors equip people for the mission of the church (disciple-making) and the day-to-day function of the church.
