Preparing for Ministry 

This program focuses on preparation for ministry through the eyes of the apostle Paul and his epistle to the Corinthians.

Concept:

This program focuses on preparation for ministry through the eyes of the apostle Paul and his epistle to the Corinthians.

In studying second Corinthians with the Early Church Fathers, we will delve into what it means to serve the church community in the context of competing worldviews. 

Importance:

Submission to the will of God is vital to significant and healthy ministry.

The apostle Paul gives us a biographical sketch of the true characteristics of a servant-leader in 2 Corinthians 12:10.

The world seeks leadership for personal gain and power, but the Bible teaches just the opposite. In this program we will be reminded of the character qualities that God calls us to.

Action:

The team will read and discuss Apostle Pauls epistles to the Corinthians with the Church Fathers in the early years of Christianity.

We will work together to define best principles for serving the church and apply them to our personal ministries.

The team will also have the opportunity to visit some of the places that the apostle Paul once visited in Greece.

Your Host:

George Tolias

Born and raised in a Christian family in Greece, George studied Electrical Engineering and taught afterwards as a professor at the same university for three years. In the course of those three years, God’s calling in his life became more obvious leading him to start his studies at the Greek Bible College.

During his theological studies, he worked as an intern at the First Evangelical Church of Athens. He met his wife, Phaedra, at the Greek Bible College and together they continued their studies at Westminster Theological Seminary (MA, Theological Studies). They have two children, Olivia (4 years old) and Nicholas (3 years old). George is now the Pastor of the Glyfada church, which was the first church plant of the Polis network. He is also completing his second Master’s degree in Eastern Orthodox religion.
