What’s a Great Pastor?

I got asked the question tonight what makes a great pastor… What an awesome question. Here we go…

A great pastor (working definition)…

(1) Has openly declared that Jesus is Lord – He believes his heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, openly declaring He is saved through faith alone. (Romans 10:9-10)

(2) Has not taken lightly the calling from God on his life (Phil. 3:14) but striving to shepherd the flock entrusted to his care by striving (not obtaining perfection) in being blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, hospitable, able to teach, not given to wine (not a drunk), not violent, or greedy for money – but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous but one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence. He is not a novice puffed up with pride but has a good testimony among His fellow man avoiding the snares of the devil. (1 Timothy 3:1-7)

(3) Makes every ambition to preach the Good News (Gospel) of Jesus Christ where it has never been heard. (Romans 15:20) until Christ returns again (Matthew 24:36)

What did I miss…
