Hispanic Programs of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and Lifeway en Español to Equip the ‘Pastor-Theologian’

FORT WORTH, Texas (BP) – In effort to equip the “pastor-theologian” with the skills of biblical and theological exposition, the Hispanic Programs of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and Lifeway en Español will host the inaugural “Theology Conference-Preaching and Teaching the Book of Colossians” for pastors and ministry leaders on the Fort Worth campus Sept. 30-Oct. 1.

“We seek to equip, encourage, and assist pastors and local church leaders in applying excellent study and scholarship to their ministry and develop a strong relationship with others who seek this same purpose,” said Mark R. McClellan, director of the Hispanic Programs at Southwestern Seminary and professor of missions in the Roy J. Fish School of Evangelism and Missions. “We want to prepare those that attend with excellence and multiply like-minded leaders.”

Offered entirely in Spanish, the conference will feature Southwestern Seminary faculty who are also Lifeway en Español authors, including Juan R. Sánchez, associate professor of theology in the School of Theology, Edgar Aponte, adjunct faculty in the Hispanic Programs, and Giancarlo Montemayor, a Doctor of Philosophy student at Southwestern Seminary and adjunct faculty in the Hispanic Programs.

Noting that each of the “professors are also pastors,” McClellan said Sánchez, Aponte, and Montemayor will “provide teaching that can be applied to pastoral and church ministry.”
