The Rev. Sean Stanfield (3/4 time at Thrive Church and 1/4 time at Good Shepherd UMC in the Cumberland District) recently completed the Basic Course of Study curriculum for local pastors and participated in the service of graduation at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology.
If God is calling you or someone you know to become a pastor but seminary is not really an option for you, you may want to consider becoming a licensed local pastor.
