Episode #21: The Preacher and Personal Sanctification

This week on Preaching and Preachers, Burk Parsons joins me in a discussion on the preacher and personal sanctification. Burk is editor of Tabletalk magazine and serves as co-pastor of Saint Andrew’s Chapel in Sanford, Fla.

Guest(s): Burk Parsons


Some of the topics discussed on today’s episode are:

  • Burk’s ministry with Tabletalk and Saint Andrew’s Chapel
  • How Burk became co-pastor with R. C. Sproul at Saint Andrew’s Chapel
  • Why the Preacher should care about his personal sanctification
  • The dreadful reality of a pastor not concerned with their personal sanctification
  • The lack of emphasis in the church on the pastor’s personal sanctification
  • The need for a balanced view of holiness and sanctification
  • The role of the spiritual disciplines in the life of a pastor’s personal sanctification
  • Ways a pastor can evaluate or assess his personal devotions
  • The effect of a pastor’s personal sanctification on his congregation
  • Ways a pastor can rightly communicate to the congregation his own personal sanctification for the benefit of the congregation
  • The unrivaled significance of the pastor depending on Christ


3 ways a pastor can pursue their personal sanctification:

  • Find accountability with a close fellow pastor.
  • Find identity in Christ, not in calling.
  • Be intentional with both spiritual and physical needs.
