2 MSMN 1303 Principles of Biblical Teaching, Expository Preaching classes, MSPM 3300-3305 may substitute for ENGL 1311 Fundamentals of Speech. Expository Preaching classes, MSPM 3300-3305, are for men only. Students who take MSPM 3300 as the substitute for ENGL 1311 may take any other preaching class. Students who do not take MSPM 3300 as a substitute must take this class prior to taking any other preaching classes. Consequently, MSPM 3300 may be the only class they can take to satisfy their Biblical Preaching requirement for the Pastoral Ministries minor.

3 These classes are for men only.

 

Minor: Pastoral Ministries

Purpose: The Pastoral Ministry minor is designed to provide male students with biblical and theological education to serve as a senior pastor or as an associate pastor or minister. The minor intends to equip the student with foundational competencies that will enable him to lead a local church or to serve effectively as a part of a pastoral staff. It includes training in preaching, shepherding and exposure to many areas of pastoral ministry. It is CBS’ conviction from the Scriptures (see 1 Timothy 2;11, 1 Timothy 3:2, Titus 1:6, etc.) that women are not assigned the office position of pastor for the local church congregation. Since the courses are designed for the office position of pastor, the College asks female students to respect CBS’ conviction and not select MSPM courses or the minor.
