Dr. Jared Compton returned to Wisconsin last week to be the guest speaker at the Pastor-Theologian Collective. He discussed the story of the Bible in five verses from Hebrews 2. It was a great seminar that beautifully connected Psalm 8, Genesis 1-3, and Hebrews 2.
The next Pastor-Theologian Collective will be on May 9, 2023, at Memorial Baptist Church in Verona. Dr. Douglas Sean O’Donnell (senior vice president of Bible editorial at Crossway) will be presenting on Preaching Job.

While not an official WARBC event, the Pastor-Theologian Collective has blessed several WARBC pastors. Here is what some WARBC pastors had to say:
I absolutely love Pastor-Theologian Collective because they bring in great speakers that have challenged me to think differently on the topics they have spoken about. I really enjoy the fellowship and time to discuss with other pastors, but my favorite part is that they have graciously given out books from the speakers. – Drew W.
As Pastors, we are called by God to “Feed My Sheep” (John 21:15-19). This has always been my greatest blessing in Serving Him. There is time though, when we need to be fed as well, lest we neglect to obey God’s word in 1 Peter 3:15 “…always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you…”. The February 7th Pastor-Theologian Collective was just what I needed to be refreshed and equipped for continued service. – Josh S.
The Pastor-Theologian Collective is worth attending because…
I enjoy reading/studying, but listening to authors/thinkers explain a text or a theological perspective in real-time is my preferred way to learn.
Jared Compton (as well as brother Klink) deal with the clock. Being forced to hit a topic or a text efficiently requires precision and selectivity. We won’t get everything they know, but what we are given is pure gold.
I got to meet some quality men who are interested in ministry and disciple-making that I did not know before. A pastor from Evansville will be planning a trip to Rapids in December, and I plan on visiting his ministry this summer. I sense he’s an ‘idea man’ that may spark my thinking in new ways.
The chance to experience something different in my ministry routines brings a freshness to my perspective about my routines.
I loved formal schooling. These sessions take me back to what I loved best about it (and it comes without tests, quizzes, and papers to write). – Jack A.
As a guy who has been out of the academic classroom for many years, I find it so refreshing to sit in a classroom setting and learn new insights in biblical thinking. It was worth every moment of my time, and I can’t wait for the Job (as in the book of Job, not where you work) Collective in May. – Bill M.
As you can see, the event is well worth your time. It would be great to see you in Verona on May 9th. Click here to register.
