Spurgeon Center

Ministry to Pastors and Churches

This ministry includes church and pastoral consultation, training related to church revitalization, pastoral prayer support, pastoral retreat and sabbatical opportunities, and specific ministry to full time and bivocational pastors as well as their families.


Dr. John Ewart, director of the C. H. Spurgeon Center, along with Dr. Chuck Lawless, Vice President of Graduate Studies and Ministry Centers, have multiple decades of combined experience in church and denominational consultation. As part of the Center’s ministry to pastors and churches, various workshops, resources, and opportunities will be offered in the area of church consultation.


A major goal of the Center is the development of key resources and training opportunities that lead to healthy churches. As part of this challenge, a new Masters-level course, PMN6600: Church Revitilization, has been developed. This course will be offered as a five-day intensive on campus, as well as through our Distance Learning Office. Please see the semester course schedule for availability. Additional events and resources relating to church revitilization will also be offered.

Prayer Support

The C. H. Spurgeon Center staff is committed to praying for and with local church leaders, as well as seeking to enhance the prayer life of local churches. A secure prayer network is being developed by the Center, as well as events and other resources relating to prayer.

Pastoral Retreat/Sabbatical Leave

The C. H. Spurgeon Center is currently compiling information in order to serve as a resource for pastors who are looking for retreats and temporary residences for sabbatical leave. Please check back soon for updated information!
