Ministry in the Capital: An Interview with Mark Dever
Tabletalk: What are some of the unique challenges of ministering in Washington, D.C.? How do you seek to overcome those challenges?
Mark Dever: I don’t really think there are any unique challenges. I guess you could say that given our location, I have to be extra careful about sounding partisan. But other than that, the ministry here is remarkably like ministry in any other urban area around the world.
The best way I know how to overcome any unique challenge is to ensure that the gospel is clear and present in every message. I keep the gospel central and try to avoid any unduly partisan expressions or language.
