Matt Chandler, pastor of The Village Church in Highland Village, TX gives his thoughts on going to seminary.
I have been asked recently about what my thoughts are concerning seminary and why I never finished. I have found this to be a very polarizing subject where people put me in the camp of those who think that seminary is unnecessary or put me into the other camp that thinks scholarship isn’t important for the pastorate. The truth is I think most men need to go to seminary and scholarship is extremely important. I want to address it as a Pastor, though, and talk to Pastors about seminary. If you are looking to become a professor or scholar these thoughts wouldn’t apply to you.
