When you sign up for Seminary training, you take an important spiritual step. You will not enroll in a program of a denomination or organization. You will be enrolled in a “Seminary of the spirit.” It is the training of your spirit by the Holy Spirit—and that learning never ends.
The purpose of Seminary training is not just to provide a mountain top spiritual experience and then send you back into the valley of life to lose it. The true test of your training will be the ability to take what you learn in Seminary back into the valley of everyday life and ministry to use it. The success of your experience also rests in your willingness to pass on to others what you learn.
"... the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also." (II Timothy 2:2)
Where this spiritual call to harvest will take you, only God knows, however, you can be assured that you will not labor alone. You have joined a great army of laborers, dating back to the disciples of Jesus, who have heard the call and responded. You are part of a growing network of international harvesters!
Never settle for less than the final objective. Keep sowing and reaping, in seed time and harvest time, until every people group, every tribe, and every nation is reached with the Gospel.
In His service,
Bishop Dr. David L. Lathrop
