Life in Intentional Community with Dr. Keith Matthews

Listen to this episode


Dr. Keith Matthews has been in ministry for over 30 years. He is a known expert in spiritual formation, contemporary culture and pastoral training. He is the Chair of the Ministry Department and a Professor at Azusa Pacific Seminary.

He has written articles for the journal Conversations, Sojourners magazine, and Leadership Journal, as well as designed and co-authored Dallas Willard’s Study Guide to the Divine Conspiracy.

3 Big Takeaways:

  1. Pastors are part of the body; they are not outside the body.
  2. Being a Christian is an outcome, not an identifier.
  3. Our Western model of teaching is: information transfer. However, consuming and memorizing is not enough to change people’s character.

Someone questions I ask:

  • What is a pastor? (7:23)
  • What is church? (12:49)

Sneak Peak of More:

  • Modernity, Capitalism, and Church (15:10)
  • Moving Beyond our “Sunday-Only” Church Paradigm (20:15)
  • How the Church “Overpromises and Underdelivers” (24:47)
  • A New Vision for Our Spiritual Communities (32:23)
