Practical Pastoral Counseling


Pastors can help people face reality
and be responsible.
We can help them to find practical solutions
to their problems.
We can help them by developing a learned
observation and by insight that God
will give us, and them to understand
how they are relating to others,
and how they may need to change
in order to be more adult and mature.

In pastoral counseling, the pastor as
counselor is concerned with spiritual
In other types of counseling the spiritual
aspect is often totally ignored.

The pastor is also concerned with
psychological problems.
He is also aware that physical problems
may be contributing to a spiritual
or psychological problem.

Pastoral counselors can use some practical
techniques to recognize psychological
and spiritual problems.
Isaiah 50:4: "The Lord God hath given me
the tongue of the learned,
that I should know how to speak
a word in season to him that it is weary

These words are so fitting for pastors
who are counseling.

Studies in Genesis

This study is a chapter by chapter
study of Genesis.

I can’t imagine anything more
fundamental to our faith than the
opening chapters of the Bible.

Here we find the answer to some very
profound questions:
Where did we come from?
How did we get here?
Were we created or did we arrive
on the scene as the random product
of a mindless evolution?
And if we were created,
who created us and how did it happen?
Where did it happen?
When did it happen?

Genesis is the book of beginnings.
The word means "origins"
or "beginnings."
It sets the stage for the rest
of the Bible, telling us God's plan
for His creation.

Many churches experience
unhappy situations
due to a misunderstanding
of the nature and work
of the pastor.

I pray that these studies of the pastor and his church members will be used of God to give us
and them a better understanding

Sermon Preparation

The purpose of Sermon
is to enable pastors
to fine-tune their sermon
preparation and their preaching.

God is in the business of making
himself known and making himself
We can know God because God
is making himself known.

The mystery is that He does it
through preachers.
When the sermon is faithful
to God's purposes, God works
powerfully through
the imperfect instrument.
Preaching that proclaims God's word enables people to hear
from God.
Nothing is more important
than preaching that Word.

Let us pray that God will make
preaching the agent
of transformation that He
intended it to be.

From Dr. White:
I have taught a seminary extension
course in homiletics.
Our textbook was "Preparation and
Delivery Of Sermons
, authored by
Dr. John Broadus.
It was first published in 1870.
The latest revision was in 1926.
I also studied that book in seminary.

John A. Broadus (1827-1895),
the pre-eminent American Baptist
of the 19th century, and
a founder of the Southern Baptist
Theological Seminary and professor
of Greek and New Testament

This textbook has been the standard
 on which many books and studies
on homiletics has been based.
This web site will largely be based
on this textbook.
Sermon Preparation has also taken
 advantage of many resources
that can now be found
on the Internet.

I am still a learner, and I am indebted
to those who have provided me
with the resources and inspiration
throughout my life.”
