In First Timothy, the apostle Paul instructed us to celebrate our pastors, calling them "worthy of double honor." In light of that, we honor our pastors all month in October. Ed Stetzer sits down with lead Pastor Rick Blackwood of Christ Fellowship in Miami to talk about Pastor Appreciation Month.
Rick Blackwood is lead pastor of Christ Fellowship in Miami. He ministers by teaching verse by verse through the books of the Bible. Christ Fellowship is a multicultural, international church with members from over 70 different nationalities. Nearly 10,000 people attend services on weekends and it has been listed among the fastest growing and largest churches in America. Rick holds two Master’s degrees and three Doctoral degrees from Grace Theological Seminary, the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Trinity International University. Rick is married to Rhonda. They have two daughters, Natalie and Rebekah.
Ed Stetzer wears a lot of hats—author, speaker, researcher, pastor, church planter—as he helps Christians learn to share Christ. Ed has earned two master’s degrees and two doctorates, and has written or co-written a dozen books and hundreds of articles. Now he ministers as interim pastor of The Moody Church, teaches at Wheaton College, and serves as executive director of the Billy Graham Center and a regional director of Lausanne North America. Ed and his wife, Donna, have been married more than 25 years and have three daughters.
