From the Editor
In Ephesians 4:11-16, the Apostle teaches the two-sided truth that ministry matures, and maturity ministers. Talbot aims at preparing men and women who are themselves maturing in Christ, and who are equipped to minister in ways that will help bring others to maturity.
The Department of Christian Ministry and Leadership at Talbot has assembled an exemplary faculty. They are first practitioners, but they have thought deeply about the nature of ministry. These are professors who “understand the times,” but firmly believe that truly relevant ministry will be first of all biblical. They research, write and teach about church growth, about sermon preparation and delivery, about the role of women in ministry, about pastoral counseling.
The CML Department bridges the divide between classroom and ministry life. I hope this issue will help you get (re)acquainted with this outstanding group of profs.
We’re your fellow-servants,
Sundoulos is published by the Talbot Alumni Association for the purpose of ministering to and communicating with alumni and friends of Talbot. All rights reserved. No material can be reproduced without the permission of the Sundoulos editorial staff.
The Talbot journal, Sundoulos (soon'-doo-los), is designed to serve those who have graduated from Talbot and are in full-time ministry. Sundoulos grew out of an influx of requests for some kind of continued support for alumni as they finished their coursework at Talbot. In 1993, it joined with the Alumni newsletter and received a new format. Dr. Bob Saucy was instrumental in the creation of the journal and describes it as “a way we could bring the fruit of the faculty to alumni.”
