The Center for Pastor Theologians (CPT) is an organization dedicated to assisting pastor-theologians in the study and written production of biblical and theological scholarship for the ecclesial renewal of theology and the theological renewal of the church. Operating within the historic evangelical tradition, the CPT believes the contemporary bifurcation between the pastoral calling and theological formation has resulted in the loss of a distinctly ecclesial voice in orthodox theology. The CPT seeks to resurrect this voice.
The Bulletin of Ecclesial Theology is published annually by the Center for Pastor Theologians. The essays contained within the Bulletin are drawn from the papers presented at the Center’s bi-annual theological symposia for pastors. The aim is that the Bulletin model robust ecclesial theology — theology that is born out of a parish context and driven by parish questions and concerns.
Related to the work of the CPT is Gerald Hiestand and Todd Wilson’s, The Pastor as Theologian: Resurrecting an Ancient Vision (Zondervan).
