121 – Why I Did NOT Go to Seminary and Why I Never Will

When God called me into full-time vocational pastoral ministry, I knew He called me to plant a church…not go to seminary!

While I understand that this went against the grain of the traditional/conventional “path” into pastoral ministry, I don’t regret my decision one bit.  It was part of me “Embracing My Story.”

Furthermore, I have come to realize that there is a huge difference between having an education versus having a degree/formal schooling.  The two are not necessarily synonymous.

In this podcast episode, I share my thoughts on this subject in more detail.  My prayer is that this would be an encouragement to other pastors who God has called toward a more non-traditional route to not feel unequipped, unqualified, or uneducated.
