Connecting the Dots in an Unconnected World

The Baptist College of Florida

This Monday and Tuesday it has been my privilege to preach at the chapel services of the Baptist College of Florida. This is the 16th consecutive year that I have done so. I also serve as the chair of the Administrative Committee of the Baptist College of Florida Board of Trustees.

The Baptist College of Florida is one of the best kept secrets in Southern Baptist life. Her president Dr. Tom Kinchen is in his 19th year as president of the college. He has done a wonderful job of leading this school to stay true to the Word of God, expand her ministry, and increase both enrollment and endowments. Dr. Kinchen and the faculty are raising up a generation of Baptist leaders that will impact the world with the gospel. Dr. Kinchen is genuine visionary.

Preaching at the chapel services of the college is one of the pure joys of my ministry. The opportunity to interact with both the Godly faculty and the eager student body is a blessing. The services were worshipful and uplifting. One of the real treats this year was Ruthi was able to join me and sing on Monday, her singing is always better than my preaching. God gave me wonderful freedom to preach His Word.

It is exciting to be identified with this fine college. I appreciate the wonderful people of Southside Baptist Church that view this use of my time as an investment in the next generation of Southern Baptist life.
