Episode 190: Becoming a Pastor-Theologian with Dr. Kevin Vanhoozer
In February 2019, EFCA pastors and church leaders gathered at Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois, for the annual Theology Conference. As part of this Conference, there was a luncheon lecture with Dr. Kevin Vanhoozer, entitled, “‘Did You Now Know That I Must Be About My Father’s Business?’: Becoming a Pastor-Theologian.”
On this episode of the podcast, we learn from Kevin as he addresses becoming a pastor-theologian by asking and answering five key questions: (1) "Why pastor-theologian?", (2) "Why pastor as public theologian?", (3) "What are the roles of the pastor-theologians?", (4) "How do pastor-theologians make disciples?" and (5) "How can pastors grow into their role as theologians?"
Kevin serves as research professor of systematic theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois.
