Last week I wrote several blogs on the state of theological education in North America. I suggested that seminaries need to adjust their mission to the rapidly changing context of the church in twenty-first century America. I further suggested that we need to teach theology and mission as integrated topics, not as separate or unrelated academic disciplines.
This story, told by Pastor Tim Ackley, demonstrates in a simple, compelling manner the value of getting a solid missional education. As you will readily see Tim received this kind of education at Biblical Theological Seminary in suburban Philadelphia. I have taught as an adjunct at Biblical Seminary and served on the seminary’s board. Biblical’s creative and effective educational experience is one that I wholeheartedly commend to anyone looking for a good missional model. You will get a strong, clear sense of the difference a clear vision of purpose can make on a pastor who is passionate about Christ’s kingdom and mission.
