Happy Birthday to my dear friend and our @SWBTS president, @AdamGreenway. We are thankful for you and your leadership!

As we wrap up 2021 and look towards 2022, we are more excited than ever to equip the next generation of leaders in Christian ministry. Would you prayerfully consider partnering with @SWBTS by making a year-end gift to the Southwestern Fund?

Love this! Thankful for the leadership of @nicksandefur and the sacrificial giving of @PorterMemorial.

Thankful for the chance to be at @PorterMemorial this morning to hear @HaganYork86 preach. I'm eternally grateful for the impact this church has had on my life.
