Finney (Part 2) () - April 18, 2017
Mike’s passion is preaching the Bible in a verse-by-verse fashion and training other men to do the same. He graduated from The Master’s Seminary in 1996 (M. Div.), received his doctorate in Expository Preaching at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in May 2006 (D. Min.), and is an adjunct professor at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, EBTC (European Bible Training Center) and The Master’s Seminary (Doctoral Mentor). Pastor Mike is also the author of Jesus Christ: The Prince of Preachers (DayOne, 2007), The Sovereignty and Supremacy of King Jesus (DayOne, 2011), Things that Go Bump in the Church (Harvest House, 2014), Discovering Romans (Zondervan, 2014), Sexual Fidelity (NoCo Media, 2015) and Evangelical White Lies (NoCo Media, 2016). He is overwhelmed at God’s grace in his salvation and for his family (Kim, Hayley, Luke, Maddie and Grace). Mike has been the Senior Pastor at Bethlehem Bible Church (BBC) in West Boylston, MA since April 1997. When not enjoying his family, Mike is often seen on this.
Steve graduated from The Master's Seminary in 2002 and retired from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department in 2004, after 21 years of service. He and his family were called to Bethlehem Bible Church in June, 2004. Steve and his wife Janet have three grown children: Steve Jr., Kristin, and Megan, two godly sons-in-law, Jerry Fish and Joey DeFilippo, and is a grandfather of 6: January, Devany, Autumn, Carys, Jude, and Declan. Steve, aka “The Tuesday Guy,” is the Associate Pastor at Bethlehem Bible Church. He also likes board games, particularly those with some historical flavor.
Charles Grandison Finney (1792-1875) was a leader in the Second Great Awakening and has been called The Father of Modern Revivalism. Pastor Mike and Pastor Steve discuss his theology and methodology and the impact it has had even to this day. Was Finney a hero in the faith or someone we should be cautious of?
