Listen to Pastor Jeffery S. Smith's comments on these Pastoral Theology messages, here

Pastor Martin delivered these lectures to Trinity Ministerial Academy students a number of times over a period of 20 years. The messages on this page were from one class in the early 1980's. Since however he was always rethinking, reworking, adding/subtracting, and fine-tuning the materials each time they were presented, some lectures from other years have been posted below (as they were available), and are designated by a linked maroon-colored asterisk. It is recommended that these not be used as substitutes however —but as supplements—because although the titles may be the same, the place where he began/left off in one year's lecture does not always coincide with where he began/left off in a different year, and thus some vital points can be missed. Also, some lectures eventually grew from one class into two classes — but both alternates were not available (see "General Introduction" as an example, where only "Part 2" was available from this later class). Thus, if you listen to an ALTERNATE only, you could be missing half of that topic's material.

(A note about the messages changing from number 1 to number 84: the Biblical Call section [#84—#94] was not a part of the original curriculum, but was introduced in later years and inserted at this location. The lectures are laid out and numbered below exactly as they are found in the Trinity Pulpit Catalog.)
