Pastor Enrichment: Auditing "The Reformed Pastor"

Dr. Shishko
Pastors and church elders are invited to audit an advanced-level course designed especially for such office-bearers during the 2016 Winter Term at Greenville Seminary. The course is "The Reformed Pastor" (AT40), taught by Adjunct Professor William Shishko, Jan. 6-9 and 11-13.

This intensive course is a study of the day-to-day responsibilities of a local pastor, covering the role of the pastor as administrator, ruler, teacher, counselor, and friend. Class hours are 9:00 a.m. to 6 p.m. on all seven days of the course period. The listener fee for this class is $120.

Also available for auditing during the Winter Term are three other classes (see our web site for course descriptions):

  • Presbyterian Church History (HT10) - Jan. 11-15 — Dr. Nick Willborn • ($60)
  • Introduction to Homiletics (AT20) - Jan. 11-15, 18-22 — Mr. Breno Macedo • ($90)
  • Reformed Worship (AT30) - Jan 4-8 — Dr. Joseph Pipa, Jr. • ($60)
Auditing, also referred to a "listening," does not provide the student with academic credit but is intended to enrich the listener with knowledge in the field of the course. The student is generally expected not to engage extensively in class discussion or place normal student demands on the instructor. The auditing courses during the Winter Term is limited to on-campus attendance only. Class hours are listed on the registration form linked below.

Mr. Shishko is the long-standing senior pastor of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church of Franklin Square on Long Island, N.Y. He is retiring from that position in the near future, and this will be his final offering as adjunct professor at GPTS.
