This thesis examines the spiritual formation of Queensland Baptists ministers. It explores their current practice and seeks to systematise it into a framework. By elucidating a paradigm it is anticipated there will be two positive benefits. First, ministers will be able to be more intentional regarding their own formation and then second, they will be better equipped to assist their parishioners in their formation. Foundational to the thesis is that it is not sufficient to merely know about God in an academic manner but one ought to actually know God in an intimate and experiential way.
