Catalyst West 2011: Eugene Peterson

17 03 2011

Eugene Peterson

Rick Mckinley, pastor of Imago Dei Community in Portland, OR sits down to interview Eugene Peterson, pastor, scholar, poet, and author of over thirty books.

He has recently published his memoirs in “The Pastor” and in this video speaks one-on-one with Rick McKinley at Catalyst West 2011 about the vocation & formation of a pastor.

Trying to model yourself on somebody else is almost always a mistake.

Peterson doesn’t like the existing models prevalent in the American church of building programs, book-keeping and entertainment religion.

He briefly describes how he came to a different view of the pastoral ministry & the spiritual formation of the local Christian community.
