John David Smith, Director of Missions for the Baptist Missionary Association of America, will be our guest preacher this Sunday at Wyatt.
Dr. John David Smith is passionate about the missionary mandate. Influenced by church planting parents, he trusted Christ at the age of seven and was infused with a love for church multiplication. He has spent the vast majority of his adult life in some aspect of missions and church planting.
John David has been in the ministry since 1987. He and his wife, Kim, have been married for 24 years, and they have two sons: Josiah, age 19 and Seth, age 17. The Smith family served as missionaries in the Cape Verde Islands from 1992-2004. The Smiths are members at Antioch Baptist Church in Conway.
His education background includes a B.S. in Bible from Southeastern Baptist College, Laurel, Mississippi; an M. Div. from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, Lynchburg, Virginia; and a D. Min. in Missiology from Mid- America Baptist Theological Seminary, Cordova, Tennessee.
In 2007, Dr. Smith became an international assistant for the Baptist Missionary Association of America. That same year he took on the responsibility of heading up the missions degree program at Central Baptist College, Conway, Arkansas. He is currently an associate professor of missions at CBC. In 2010, he was elected to serve as the executive director of BMA Missions and serves alongside more than 900 missionaries in over 80 countries.
Please be in attendance Sunday to hear God’s Word from Brother John David.
