While I consider myself an apologist, my primary role is that of a pastor of a local church. But I don’t find these roles to be contradictory. I try to include apologetics in my pastoral ministry.
There are many ways to do this but one way is through preaching. Often in the summer I offer a “You Asked For It!” series where I allow the people in the congregation to choose the topics/passages.
I find that people often choose apologetics-related topics. This is interesting as the “experts” tell us that this culture is not interested in apologetics.
Here are a couple of sermons that I have preached recently that have been related to apologetics:
They were well received and confirmed my belief that people are still interested in topics related to apologetics. If you want to find more of my messages, you can find them here.
If you are a pastor, I encourage you to not shy away from apologetics-related topics/passages.
