Is Seminary Really Necessary by Guest Post -Sonya Thompson


The question always arises, “Is seminary really necessary for pastors and church leadership?” There was a time when people regarded seminary and Bible school as an absolute necessity, but today there are many serving in this capacity without a firm and sure foundation of Scripture. Seminary is extremely relevant today to help prepare pastors and church leaders to effectively minister to God’s people. It’s amazing how few church leaders know about the history of the Bible, how to exegete the Scripture, how to communicate effectively and how to prepare a uniform message to impact the people. It’s one thing to be called to teach, preach and minister, but it is another thing to take time and prepare oneself for effective ministry. Anyone can take a microphone and talk, but God is looking for men and women who can grasp the foundation of Scripture, pair it with His anointing and minister to His sheep.


A seminary degree also creates a certain level of structure and discipline for its attendees.  Discipline results in taking time to study and spend time with God as He gives revelation in His word. Structure comes as the pastor, minister or leader learns an organized manner of preparing, formulating, and delivering the word in an effective manner.  Seminary provides church leadership with a solid foundation to build upon.  It also aids in the enhancement of the individuals gift/grace to teach and preach the word and operate in the capacity assigned.  If you are serious about ministering and leading the kingdom forward with a spirit of excellence, then Vanguard Theological Seminary is for you.
