The Importance of Peer Accountability

When people ask us about Kairos or Sioux Falls Seminary, I like to think we provide candid and transparent responses in which we describe some of the great things that God is doing in and through Kairos as well as share some of the areas in which we think we need to grow.

What if the “job” of pastor as traditionally understood is no longer the best way to describe that role? Is it time to rethink the role of education?
