Dr. John Sullivan

This past Thursay evening I was privileged to participate in a service honoring Dr. John Sullivan for twenty years of service as the Executive Director-Treasurer of the Florida Baptist Convention. Across these years I have been blessed personally by the influence that Dr. Sullivan has wielded in my life. He and his dear wife Nancy are fitting role models for every pastor and wife. Their commitment to Christ, to Southern Baptists, and to one another is exemplary.

Allow me share a portion of my remarks at the service honoring Dr. Sullivan and his dear wife Nancy.

Florida Baptists have enjoyed living in the ever increasing shadow of this great man of God. Dr. Sullivan is unequaled in his abilities as a visionary and leader. He is uncompromising in his commitment to his faith, his family, and Florida Baptists. He is unusual in his generosity to the people of God and his love for the work of God.

The author of the fourth Gospel writes,
John 1:6-7
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

Surely, as we survey the past twenty years, Florida Baptists can rejoice and say with the sainted Apostle, There was a man sent from God, whose name was John …

Attempting to connect the dots…

Romans 1:16

“When people go to work, they don’t leave their hearts at home. We may live in a high-tech world, but leadership is still a high-touch job. “
