In this video message, Craig C. Hill, Dean of Perkins School of Theology, talks about an essential component of preparation for ministry: faith — “the faith that grounds us, the faith that prioritizes our life, the faith that tells us who we are at our core.” He recalls the words of Jesus: If you want to find your life, you need to lose it for the Gospel. “That’s what Christian ministry is all about,” he said. “Giving yourself to something larger.” This is the fourth in Dean Hill’s four-part video series looking at the four elements of an excellent theological education that prepare students for ministry: knowledge, skills, character and faith.
