Preparing for Sunday - David M. McAlpin
This Sunday, Dr. David M. McAlpin, Vice President for Student Development and Associate Professor of Biblical Interpretation at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, will be preaching as a part of our Morning Gathering.
He comes to Midwestern with over 25 years of experience as a senior pastor, having served churches in Tennessee, Florida, and Missouri. During his 14+ year tenure at the First Baptist Church of Harvester in St. Charles, Mo., he co-founded the Center for Christian Ministry Studies at Lindenwood University and also served as the Center’s Executive Director from 2002 to 2006. As both pastor and academician, McAlpin has been committed to interpreting the Bible with accuracy, and preaching it with passion and clarity. Helping those called into Christian ministry to develop those same gifts energizes and animates his life.
McAlpin holds a B.A. from Berry College, an M.Div. from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, and a Ph.D. from Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary. He served on Midwestern’s Board of Trustees from 1995 until 2000; additionally, he served in various capacities on the state denominational level.
He and his wife, Nanell, have two sons.
- Pray for those who will be attending this Sunday who do not know Christ. Pray they will have a conviction of sin and a longing for Christ.
- Pray for those who know Christ who will attend Sunday. Pray they will be encouraged and convicted appropriately and that eternal changes take place this Lord's Day.
- Pray for those who will be leading the service this Sunday: Dawson Bryant, music; Brett Harris, Prayer and Scripture reading; Dr. David McAlpin, teaching. Pray that they will edify the church body.
- Meditate on the lyrics of the songs we will sing, and listen to them through the weekend to prepare yourself to sing with the church.
