I'm excited about the opportunity to be a part of the Center for Pastor Theologians (CPT) Third Fellowship. What is the Center for Pastor Theologians? Here's an excerpt from the website:
The CPT is an organization dedicated to assisting pastor-theologians in the study and written production of biblical and theological scholarship for the ecclesial renewal of theology and the theological renewal of the church.
Operating within the historic evangelical tradition, the CPT believes the contemporary bifurcation between the pastoral calling and theological formation has resulted in the loss of a distinctly ecclesial voice in orthodox theology. The CPT seeks to resurrect this voice. In an age that has rightly emphasized the relationship between social location and theological formation, our vision is to bring together a unique kind of pastor-theologian—not simply those particular pastors who desire to pursue a theologically informed parish ministry, but even more, pastors who feel called to function as writing theologians to the broader ecclesial community.
I'm looking forward to fruitful participation with other pastor-theologians. Be sure to click over and learn more about the CPT.
