Learning Pastoral Ministry from the Past

The Protestant Reformation of the 16th century significantly reshaped the theology and practice of the pastoral office. This was particularly evident in reformed Geneva, where Calvin and his colleagues institutionalized a biblical vision of ministry that gave priority to preaching, sacraments, catechesis, church discipline, and pastoral collegiality and accountability. In this podcast, Scott Manetsch explores pastoral practice in reformed Geneva and suggests ways Calvin’s model is relevant for faithful Christian ministry today.
