Passage: Titus 1:1–1:9
Who should lead the church? Paul’s answer is pastors who possess a character growing to be like Jesus. What is a pastor? In essence, a pastor is a growing disciple of Jesus who can make disciples. They “love what is good." They have been changed from the inside out and it is evident to family, neighbors, and co-workers. Churches led by gospel-centered pastors are Paul’s succession plan in his missionary strategy.
