Time flies when you are having fun… Or so the saying goes.
On November 1, 2013, I began my tenure at Midwestern as Dean of the College. It’s hard for me to fathom that. In many respects, it seems like only yesterday we were moving to KC, but in other ways, the community here makes if feel as if we have belonged all our lives.
Many of you are aware of the grace God continues to pour on our campus. We are seeing lives changed, church leaders transformed and Gospel impact throughout every aspect of our work here. With new friends and donors, new academic resources, and new colleagues joining the work, we are enjoying one of the sweetest seasons in our ministry!
In reflecting on my second anniversary at MBTS, I thought I would list 5 key things I’ve learned while serving at Midwestern:
It’s a great day at Midwestern! I’m exceptionally thankful God called me here. I’m thankful for the President I serve, for our trustees and the men and women I serve with day in and day out. Every day I’m reminded about the greatest treasure I have is serving the approximately 45,000 Southern Baptist Churches for whom I have the opportunity to serve by training their next pastor, missionary, or lay leader.
As the time flies, we realize more and more - God is so good!
