During Ligonier Ministries’ first annual pastors conference in October of 2003, pastors from around the country gathered to hear Dr. R.C. Sproul, John Sartelle, and Rick Phillips emphasize the importance of God-centered worship, prayer, evangelism, and preaching. This series contains all of the lectures from that conference and is a great resource for pastors or laypeople who need to better understand the function and importance of the role of the pastor, as he leads his congregation in worship and evangelism.
The intense pressure to adopt man-centered approaches to ministry from the world pounds against preachers and congregants alike. We must therefore be exhorted to remain God-centered in our worship and encourage our leaders as they faithfully preach the Word. This collection, featuring lectures from Ligonier Ministries’ annual pastors conferences by Mark Dever, Ligon Duncan, Steve Lawson, John Sartelle, R.C. Sproul, and Derek Thomas, is offered to help equip and embolden church leaders to exalt God’s glory in all aspects of ministry.
Rev. John P. Sartelle Sr. is senior minister of Christ Presbyterian Church in Oakland, Tenn. He is author of What Christian Parents Should Know about Infant Baptism.
