Ben Zornes sits down with Toby Sumpter to discuss Greyfriars Hall. Pastoral ministry is not for weaklings, and any man who would desire to serve the church in this capacity must be faithful to God both publicly and privately. It does no good to speak on Sunday morning of a holy & pure life while living a sinful & selfish one the rest of the week! Of course, such a lifestyle is only possible by the power of the Holy Spirit at work in a man.
In this conversation Ben & Toby range over a wide survey of the attributes necessary for pastoral ministry. Purity in life, boldness in preaching, steadfast in the truth of God’s Word; if one of these are missing it can result in compromise, burnout, deception, and sin. Greyfriars Hall aims to train men to be the sort of men who are not merely theology wonks, but live with warm-hearted zeal for the Gospel of the Lord Jesus.
2 Timothy 2:15 – Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
