Making Leaders Who Can Make Disciples (The Pillar Seminary)

The Pillar Seminary was founded to address persistent problems in churches and their leadership. Its students not only receive a Scripture-first education—as opposed to theology-first—but also quickly begin practicing what they’re taught.

The purpose of studying the biblical texts is to be transformed by them. True “head knowledge” of Scripture involves “heart knowledge”; by practicing biblical principles, we can understand the text better.

Join us this week as Scott Booth, Dan Lowery, and Donnell J. Moore discuss how Pillar’s approach to seminary and studying Scripture ultimately transforms students, equipping them to lead in their local churches, make disciples, and meet needs effectively within their ministries.
