“Forming a Faculty of outstanding practitioners in Christian pastoral ministry has been my dream since Macedonian Ministry’s inception. So often when pastors hear gifted leaders in ministry, they hear them in a large setting with 100, 200, or 300 other pastors! But now, this new Macedonian Ministry Faculty will allow our pastors and alumni, small group access to some of the most gifted practitioners in America. This is a priceless treasure for our pastors and an exciting day for Macedonian Ministry!” — Rev. Dr. Tom Tewell, Founder, Macedonian Ministry
