Prior to coming to Midwestern, Awbrey served as a pastor in Oxnard, Calif., and as an adjunct professor of preaching at The Master’s Seminary in Panorama City, Calif. Prior to that, he pastored in Oklahoma and Louisiana.

Dr. Awbrey completed his dissertation on the expository preaching of John MacArthur.

He and his wife, Lisa, have two children: Eric and Lauren. Dr. Awbrey has written two books on preaching: How Effective Sermons Begin and How Effective Sermons Advance.

Intentionally Act

  • Pray for those who will attend our service this Sunday, that they will be edified, encouraged where most needed, convicted where appropirate, and enlightened in how to apply the message.
  • Pray for those who will be leading the service, that they will serve in a way that edifies the entire congregation: Dawson Bryant, music; Sam Karl, prayer and Scripture reading; Dr. Ben Awbrey, teaching.
  • Meditate on the songs for this Sunday and sing them through the weekend to prepare your heart to sing as a whole congregation. What are these songs saying about who God is and how we should respond to him?
