I had breakfast recently with Sam Simmons, Co-founder of Rockbridge Seminary. Sam has a vision to make seminary education relevant and accessible to local church leaders and emerging ministers. This vision grew out of two decades of service as a seminary professor/administrator, a significant portion of this time based in Southern California as a member of Saddleback Community Church.
In this video Sam talks about that difficult transition many face moving from marketplace to vocational ministry.
