Welcome to Pastors Academy
The River Church believes that the local church should be training up men for the work of the pastorate. The Pastor’s Academy at The River Church came out of Spurgeon’s vision of training young men for the call of Pastoring (The Pastor’s College). Although this program includes academic studies, the Pastor’s Academy is focused on training pastors in a practical and “hands-on” approach to preaching, teaching, and serving our community. Therefore, the Pastor’s Academy is training men who feel called to ministry that is apparent, approved, and appointed by a River Church Location Pastor. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
“No work can possibly confer a greater benefit upon mankind than the training of ministers whom God has chosen, for around them spring up churches, schools, and all the agencies of religion and philanthropy.”
