Don't Miss the Pastoral Moments

The Nines Conference 2014


When you are in pastoral leadership, you will face tough questions, especially with the culture's shifting views on sexual norms. In this 4-minute session from The Nines Conference 2014, Gary Brandenburg, Lead Pastor of Fellowship Dallas in Dallas, Texas sits down with Jeff Fritsche, Lead Pastor of White Rock Fellowship in Dallas, Texas to talk about some of the challenges they have faced ministering to the same-sex individuals in their congregations.

Like Gary observed, if your idea of pastoral ministry is having all the right answers about social issues, you will end up missing out on profound gospel opportunities. It is important to have a biblical conviction about topics like homosexuality, but they must be communicated in ways that invite others into the community of the church. Don't miss pastoral moments when facing difficult questions. Strive to understand the situations of others so as to meet them personally with the love of Christ.
