Summer Semester 2009
Commissioned to Serve: I & II Timothy and Titus
In this class we will examine what the Apostle Paul has to say about service, discipline, and leadership as we study what are commonly known as the “Pastoral Epistles”. We will dive deeply into the text of the books, examine their historical context, and derive practical applications for both those in positions of church leadership and those who serve in other ways.
