Scot Shelburne is one of the speakers at the upcoming God Focused Youth Ministry Training Conference and also serves as the senior pastor of my church, Falls Road Baptist in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. I had the opportunity to sit down and interview him to hear his perspective on God-focused ministry in a local church.
It seems as though more and more people are emphasizing the nature of the Bible as God's self-revelation, not an inspired self-help book for finding "Twelve Steps to Becoming a Better Christian" or "Five Ways to Live Like Joseph." It is especially heartening to hear it from senior pastors like Scot and Bob Bixby. Keep it comin'.
