Here, Fletcher raises concern over the doctrine of ‘finished salvation,’ If our justification he finished, there is no need of believing in order to be justified. If our sanctification be finished, there is no need of mortifying one sin, praying for one…

Some prefer popularity to plain dealing. We love to see a crowd of worldly-minded hearers, rather than ‘a little flock, a peculiar people zealous of good works.’[1. John William Fletcher, ‘Second CHeck to Antinomianism: Letter III.’

Another quote from Fletcher. This one pertains to the content and/or substance of the message. In short, whoever has courage enough to preach as St. Paul did at Athens Lystra, and before Felix, rebuking sin without respect of persons; whoever will imitate…

Though oppressed with the weight of near seventy years, and the care of near thirty thousand souls, he shames still, by his unabated zeal and immense labours, all the young ministers in England, perhaps in Christendom. He has generally blown the Gospel…

Photos shot using the Nikon D5200. I purchased this kit [Nikon D5200 Digital SLR with 18-55mm & 55-200mm Non-VR Lenses (Black)] after Christmas, but haven’t had much time to play around with it. I shot these yesterday, of the Juniata River, as the…

John William Fletcher laments the state of affairs in the church of his day: The old Puritans strongly insisted upon personal holiness and the first Methodists upon the new birth; but these doctrines seem to grow out of date. The Gospel is cast into…

Is not the Antinomianism of hearers fomented by that of preachers? Does it not become us to take the greatest part of the blame upon ourselves, according to the old adage, ‘Like priest, like people?” Is it surprising that some of us should have an…

John William Fletcher observed, Hence it is that some preachers must choose comfortable subjects to please their hearers; just as those who make an entertainment for nice persons are obliged to study what will suit their difficult taste.[1. John William…

The way that Stephen Colbert signed off last night was brilliant. A star studded join Colbert in singing ‘We’ll Meet Again.’

Story
Introduction
I am a husband and a father.  I am an ordained minister in the Wesleyan Church, and am serving as the pastor of the Mount Union Wesleyan Church. Growing up in a pastor's home, I saw the good, the bad, and the ugly of ministry. I earned a masters degree in Ministry Leadership and an M.Div from George Fox Evangelical Seminary. Currently, I'm completing a PhD through the University of Birmigham (UK).

In 2008, I began the Master of Arts in Ministry Leadership program at GFES. I graduated in 2012 with a M.Div. Experiences early in ministry left me teetering on the edge of burn out and feeling completely inadequate and in no way up to the task of pastor. I applied to GFES hoping to learn more and become better equipped to serve the local church. In the end, classes in pastoral care, congregational leadership and the like prepared me to better serve the local church. Along the way, however, I learned some things that have been far more impactful and useful. The spiritual formation component of the GFES experience was one of the program's highlights. During my time at GFES, I became increasingly aware about myself; how I was relating to God; God's work in my life and God's movement in the world around. The cohort aspect of the program helped spark some of these revelations. After all, three years of posting together and sharing life together a few weeks out of the year, allows a person to forge bonds with those that s/he is learning with. Those bonds gave us permission to speak into one another's lives and to be present to one another as we worked out the issues of life with fear and trembling. While my education at GFES was oriented toward the practical and while spiritual formation was an emphasis, academics were by no means on the back burner. Academically, GFES helped me to rediscover my love of church history and historical theology. At the same time, GFES helped to pave the way for my acceptance to the University of Birmingham (UK) and a spot in their PhD program. My experience leads me to believe that GFES is a top-notch academic institution that prepares its seminarians for both future academic endeavors and ministry in local churches. The online learning community (OLC) means that students can undertake their studies while remaining in their local context, engaged in ministry.
