This online and on campus training portion of the C. H. Spurgeon Center includes specific curriculum development related to pastors, as well as conferences, workshops, webinars and online resources, all geared toward equipping local church leadership. Practical training opportunities will be offered for our students and alumni as well as those who are not yet a part of the Southeastern family.
Authenticity Series: An Honest Look Into the Life of a Pastor
The C. H. Spurgeon Center is launching the Authenticity Series in order to provide an honest and encouraging look at the issues real pastors face in ministry. These events will be conversational and will feature input from a panel of experts in the field. Intended for both local pastors and students interested in pastoral ministry, Authenticity Series events will tackle practical and/or theological topics most relevant to ministry today.
The fall semester’s Authenticity event will take place on Tuesday, November 11th from 7 – 8:30 PM. Please join us for a helpful conversation on how to handle conflict in ministry.
Equip Workshops are intended to provide practical training for Southeastern students are interested or involved in pastoral ministry, as well as area pastors. These events will provide a multi-faceted study of key aspects of ministry that aren’t always taught in the classroom, such as funerals, ordinances, and pastoral care. These events will provide students with a strong foundational understanding of the theological implications and practical considerations of each topic.
The fall semester’s Equip Workshop will take place on Wednesday, October 29th from 10 AM – 12 PM in Appleby Chapel. This workshop will look deeper into the topic of weddings, addressing issues related to both theological and practical concerns.
In the upcoming months, the C. H. Spurgeon Center will develop one or more Annual Conference concepts that speak specifically to the needs of full-time and bivocational pastors and their families. These conferences will take place on the Southeastern campus so that local pastors and students may attend. The C. H. Spurgeon Center Conferences will also be available via simulcast for those wishing to attend from a distance. After the event, the content will be made available on our “Recommended Resources” page.
