Lifelong Pastorates

This is a wonderful lecture by Robert S. Rayburn on “Ministry By the Generation” (direct mp3 link)

He argues that historically Protestants have mostly had an expectation of lifelong or near lifelong pastorates.

I know many of us will immediately think of problems with this, and in my own denominational context it is extremely unlikely.

But what a wonderful vision for those who love the local church and want to shepherd across the generations in one place!
