Core Qualities of a CT Pastors Article

We're looking for pieces that provide wisdom and tools for working pastors. A published article describes real experiences in powerful prose, painting vivid scenes that pastors can identify with. Tell the story of what happened and what you learned. Readers can see what went wrong and what went right, learning from the experience of someone who's been there. Show that you understand the complexities, joys, and pain of modern ministry. Offer insight on the practical issues: the conflicts, temptations, mistakes, and successes.

What Shouldn’t I Submit?

CT Pastors does not publish the following:


Theology pieces (for example, “Why we should teach more on ...”)

Movie, TV show, or video game reviews

Articles belittling or attacking working pastors or the church
