Things That Hinder Your Years at Seminary

In this three-message series, Chuck Swindoll addresses students at Dallas Theological Seminary to impart key lessons he’s learned and biblical principles he’s followed in his more than 50 years of work in the ministry.

If you’re engaged in any form of Christian service—as a pastor, small group leader, or mentor—you will encounter difficulties from other people, from the dark side of your own fallen nature, and from the trials of life. Chuck’s wisdom will help you navigate these difficulties and become a more effective servant of God.

Learn to lead with more clarity and serve with greater confidence as you traverse the challenges of ministry.

Esther: A Woman of Strength and Dignity

September 25 - October 2, 2018

Ever wonder how God controls this world? How He orchestrates our lives? In the book of Esther, we see that God is in fact in every detail.

King Ahasuerus chose Esther, a young Jew, to be his queen. The true King of the cosmos, however, chose Esther for an even greater role. When evil Haman influenced Ahasuerus to issue an edict ordering the annihilation of all the Jews, God called Esther for “such as time as this” to save her people.

Chuck Swindoll traces through Esther’s story God’s invisible hand, which writes silently across the pages of all human history. Like Esther, learn to live courageously and with hope regardless of your circumstances.
