Pastors' Conference panel discusses: 'How do you maintain your devotional life in a busy pastorate?'

Oct 22, 2018

JONESBORO – During a panel discussion titled, “How do you maintain your devotional life in a busy pastorate?” at the Arkansas Baptist State Convention Pastors' Conference Oct. 22, strategies were shared on how a pastor can keep focused spiritually.

Panelists shared that things like reading from a one-year Bible each day, spending time in the outdoors in meditation, setting aside time during office hours for prayer and personal devotion and fasting as ways that pastors and ministers can focus on maintaining their personal devotional times even in the midst of ministry responsibilities.


The panel, moderated by Chanson Newborn, pastor of Fellowship Community Church, Forrest City, included Don Pucik, senior pastor of Wynne Baptist Church, Wynne; Zac Reno, lead pastor of The Summit Church Saline, Benton; Neal Scoggins, pastor of City of Refuge Community Church, Little Rock; and Ken Shaddox, senior pastor of Park Hill Baptist Church,  North Little Rock.

Scoggins encouraged pastors who are currently not devoting time for their personal devotion to the spiritual disciplines that the most important thing is to “start.”
