My conference (video) address: Top 10 biblical priorities for every pastor in the local church.

At a conference in Scotland, I recently revealed my top 10 biblical priorities for every pastor in the local church.  For those interested in watching that address, here it is.  I welcome your thoughts.

Here are “the ten” to which I first give biblical warrant, then offer 2-3 practical helps to effectively do each of them:

1)      Guard the truth (1 Tim 4.6-7, 16; 6.20-21; 2 Tim 1.13-14; 2.1-2)

2)      Preach and teach the Word (1 Tim 4:13; 2 Tim. 4:2; Acts 6.2)

3)      Pray for the flock (Eph. 6:18-20, 1 Thess. 5:17; Acts 6.2)

4)      Set an example (1 Tim 4.12; 1 Pt 5.3 cf. 1 Cor 11.1)

5)      Visit the sick (James 5:14, Matt. 25:31-40)

6)      Comfort the grieving (1 Thess. 4:13-17, John 11)

7)      Care for widows (1 Tim. 5:3, Acts 6:1-7)

8)      Confront sin (1 Cor. 5, Matt. 18, 1 Thess. 3, Titus 3)

9)      Encourage the faint-hearted (1 Thess. 5:14, Rom. 14:1)

10)    Identify and train other leaders (Acts 6:1-7, 13:1-3; 2 Tim 2.2)

    Pastor Croft,

    Long time reader, first time poster. Great sermon. My only question is, how can I find it in audio mp3 format so that I might download it to my ipod? Is it on your church website? Thanks.

    Soli Deo Gloria,

    Craig

      The conference website is handling it. You could check with them about a different format. Glad the blog is helpful.

    Brian, thanks for sharing this. Very clarifying and a helpful reminder of our biblical responsibilities.

    I also know the Rees’ , in fact we enjoyed having them in northern Ireland a few weekends ago.

    Blessings on you.
