Last week, I had the privilege of preaching a devotional sermon at our annual Every Nation Seminary faculty retreat, which was held in cabins in the woods near a waterfall about 100K from Nashville (thus my shorts).

My goal was to remind our faculty that the outcome of theological education must be more than accumulating Bible information and acquiring ministry skills. Information and skills are important, but the formation of Christ in the heart of leaders is ultimate.

That being the case, the question is: How can we teach, preach, and do ministry so that Christ is formed in the heart of our listeners?
