TEXT/MEDIA REVIEW

UNIT FOUR INTRODUCTION
In this unit of study, the matter of modeling will be discussed. As integral to the issue of Christian character is the issue of Christian witness, especially as concerns pastoral ministry. Trask’s textbook, The Pentecostal Pastor: A Mandate for the 21st Century, addresses the character of the Lord’s servant, beginning on page 109 in this week’s assigned reading. The essence and image of the pastor’s personal relationship with Christ and his own understanding of ministry is critical to his effective service to others.

Consequently, a look at the New Testament example of the Apostle Paul is helpful toward developing and living out the incarnational message of Jesus Christ to a hurting world and parish. Our lecture for the unit, Paul’s Example of Pastoral Ministry, will offer you considerable insight for reflection and dialogue and assist you towards the development of your own ministerial example to others.
