In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Chandler Vannoy are joined by former co-host Barnabas Piper who is an author, speaker, and an assistant pastor at Immanuel Church in Nashville, Tennessee. During the conversation, they discuss how to decide if and when you should go to seminary, how to facilitate community in your church, and how wisdom comes through time and intentional learning.
“The decision whether to go to seminary is a case-by-case decision.”
“When it comes to the decision about seminary, look for a setting that will help you in your ministry context.”
“When you go to seminary, go to get. Don’t just go to look around.”
“People are stickier than your preaching.”
“They would send 20-year olds to war, but you had to be 30-year olds to care for the holy items in the tabernacle. ”
“Wisdom comes with time and intentional learning.”
