  • If your wife and children aren’t cool with moving to a small city and a small church where they will be loved dearly but where you almost certainly won’t make the big bucks, the TPA is not for you.
  • If you’re not interested at all in working a part-time “secular” job while you’re doing theological training, the TPA is not for you.

  • If you have to have professors with Ph.Ds and lots of published work, the TPA is not for you.

  • If the thought that you will soon be dead makes you fiery with zeal to do something radical for the cause of Christ and the Gospel, the TPA might be for you.

  • If you’re really interested in church planting, the TPA might be for you.

  • If you long to be like John Bunyan, whom Spurgeon described as a man you could prick anywhere and he’d bleed the Bible, the TPA might be for you.

  • If you like the idea of throwing your lot in with a band of no-name, rag-tag, small-church, passionate pastors and students, the TPA might be for you.

  • If you’re okay with probably not meeting the artificial expectations of denomination VIPs and the search committees of executive-type churches, the TPA might be for you.

  • If it thrills you that some struggling church in the middle of nowhere might love to have you as their pastor and might love that you got your theological training in a non-traditional setting, the TPA might be for you.
