Reflection Questions

Answers to the reflection questions should be submitted as a single MS Word or Word-compatible document by attaching or uploading it in the appropriate place below. If you have difficulty uploading the document, please call Kathy Muenchow at 512-404-4857.

The total word limit is 3,000. You may allocate the 3,000 as you wish among the questions, but you must answer at least three of the four questions.

  1. Describe a significant theological influence on you and your ministry.
  2. When have you learned something that impacted your leadership as a pastor? How did you learn it?
  3. Dwight Moody, the American evangelist and publisher who founded the Moody Bible Institute, said, “Someday I will be a citizen of heaven, but for now I am registered to vote in Cook County.” How does your identity as a pastor at this point in your ministry fit with Moody’s self-understanding?
  4. What do you hope to gain from PLPL and what do you think you would bring to the program?
