Master’s Seminary | – Episode 3: The Origin Story

Why did John MacArthur become a preacher? You’ll find the answer on a two-lane Alabama highway, in the pastor’s home where he grew up, in the stern, loving counsel of a mentor named Charles Feinberg, and on the sports fields of John’s youth. As this episode looks at the MacArthur origin story, it will show you how God equipped John, and it will describe the character, gifting, passion, and grit that make a man effective in the pulpit. If you’ve ever wondered if God is preparing you for a lifetime of ministry, this episode tells a story that can clarify that calling.

  1. Thank you for these first 3 videos. It has been great to learn the beginnings of GCC. I listen to Pastor MacArthur multiple times daily, along with the teachers I know Pastor MacArthur colabors with. God bless you all.

  2. The Lord sent me headlong into this man of God.
    The Holy Spirit leading my SPIRITUAL growth, wisdom and learning and his way of teaching turned my soul into a sponge for his SCRIPTURAL lessons any and every time I could find any of his videos. He has given the world many loved and respected Shepards that are care takers of me and my soul has never been the same. Praise GOD and my most beloved SHEPHERD that walks this earth, thank you Lord Jesus Christ and Holy spirit for this truth in me. Blessings to you and our families.
