Four Critical Values for Pastoral Accountability 

Let’s face it. If a pastor’s accountability isn’t in the local church, it’s probably not real accountability. It’s the illusion of accountability so we can traffic in the vocabulary without the entanglements of the substance.

You can watch all the sermons at the link above. This sermon was a great example of how to match a sermon's delivery with the meaning and tone of the text. H.B. Charles, Jr. has been the pastor of Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida since 2008. Over the course of H.B.'s pastorate, his love for God's Word, the church, and lost people has resulted in joyfully balancing his pastoral responsibilities with speaking engagements in revivals, conferences, and other church events. He is married to his best friend, Crystal, and they are the proud parents of three children, H.B. Charles III, Natalie Marie and Hailey Breanne. He was a contributor of the Power in the Pulpit, and continues to seek further education to help fulfill his prayerful desire to write and teach alongside his calling to pastoral ministry.
