I am honored to be joining G3 Ministries as Executive Vice President and Editor-in-chief. I am so thankful for the strong stand for biblical truth that Josh Buice, Virgil Walker, and others in G3 leadership have taken over the years, as well as the enriching ministry the G3 conferences have been to pastors and church members. I am excited to join with them in helping to provide oversight of the organization and to expand the ministry through publishing books, curricula for churches, a theological journal, online resources, and more.
This decision for our family is certainly bittersweet to a certain extent because of the wonderful eleven years we have spent at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, ten of those on faculty. I have loved investing in the lives of current and future church leaders, I have close friends on faculty whom I will miss, and I have been especially thankful these past two years for the wonderful leadership of my dean and dear friend, Joe Crider. But I am also thankful that, though they have asked me to consider staying on faculty, Dr. Crider and other administrators have prayed for me in this decision and have encouraged me to follow the Lord’s direction.
We will also deeply miss our church family in Fort Worth, Church of Christ the King. Our eleven years of ministry there, sweet fellowship, and strong friendships will be hard to leave.
I am excited to be joining the G3 team because my deep burden has always been to help local churches, and I am thankful to be joining a ministry that has already done that for years. Josh’s vision to expand and enrich the ways G3 can help churches is inspiring, and already Virgil has brought an amazing amount of expertise to the operations of the ministry. I am really looking forward to teaming with them.
I have also always been strongly committed to the firm defense and clear articulation of important biblical doctrines such as the sufficiency and authority of Scripture, holiness, Christ-centered ministry, God-honoring worship, and more. For many years, both Josh and Virgil have stood strong and spoken with clarity on critical matters of truth, and I am honored to stand with them.
If there is ever any way G3 Ministries can be of service to you and your church, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to the ways the Lord will continue to use G3 to educate, encourage, and equip the church for his glory.
