Dr. 约翰·莱因哈特 - Chair of the 田园 Ministry Major

In 30 years of full-time Christian service, God has given me experience in a wide range of church ministries, 从公共汽车 ministry and Sunday school to church staff and deacon. At present, alongside my role as professor at 澳门博彩游戏送彩金, I serve as pastor of Lester Baptist Church. I am thankful for the privilege to help train pastoral students on a college level.

澳门博彩游戏送彩金’s 田园 major emphasizes expository preaching of God’s Word and making disciples through local church ministry. It is our joy to train men whose hearts and heads are tuned to God’s Word and who understand the need to unleash the power of His Word in cultures that are empty and seeking after things that cannot satisfy. We want the world to know that Jesus saves and satisfies the longing heart!
