Newest Edition of Direction Journal Features MB Seminary Faculty

“Good leaders need the ability to exegete Scripture, their world, and the church.” Pierre Gilbert’s introductory words frame the foundation for the latest edition of Direction Journal (Fall 2018 – Vol. 47 No. 2). The issue features a series of articles written by faculty members of MB Seminary. As the editor of the issue, Gilbert explains that the intent of each article is to offer insights to assist those who are called to lead the church.

Each faculty member considered the theme of spiritual leadership and applied it to their specific area of expertise.
