Rev magazine is asking whether seminary education is relevant today. The answer is, generally speaking, yes (depends on the seminary). Perhaps, though, the bigger question has to do with whether uneducated (or untrained) pastors can provide solid long-term leadership. The answer is, generally speaking, no. This is why so many ministers without rigorous formal education enroll in the degree programs after they've been in pastoral ministry for awhile. Of course, seminary isn't the only training model. It's just the one which has worked the best in the North American context. ~ link
