This past Sunday evening at Bethlehem Baptist Church’s Annual Meeting we witnessed an historic occasion as Dr. Jason Meyer was formally approved as Pastor John Piper’s successor as Pastor for Preaching and Vision at BBC. We are thrilled that Dr. Meyer, our former professor of New Testament at Bethlehem College & Seminary, has now taken the mantle of leadership from Dr. Piper.
The past 32+ years of ministry by Pastor John at the church have been remarkable. We have seen his faithful preaching of the Bible—the Whole Counsel of God—explode in its worldwide impact. His proclamation of the glorious truths of our great and sovereign God and our savior Jesus Christ has helped transform countless lives around the world—including my own!
Now, Dr. Jason Meyer will continue that great work of faithfully, accurately, powerfully, and winsomely preaching and teaching the doctrines we hold so dear at both BBC and BCS. This is precisely what we are about at BCS. Equipping our students, such as Dr. Meyer, to be faithful, accurate, powerful (bold), and winsome teachers and preachers of the Bible to a lost world is our aim. May the Lord grant us the blessing of witnessing what we witnessed Sunday night again and again at churches and ministries all around the globe.
