Missions at Vann
I am looking forward to this coming weekend at Vann Avenue. We will be tremendously blessed and challenged as we hear from Dr. David Sills and his son in the morning worship. I had the privilege of taking a class at Southern Seminary with Dr. Sills as my professor. I recognized from that time under his teaching a man who has a deep passion for the gospel and the mission to proclaim that gospel to the ends of the earth. Here is a brief bio from his website (reachingandteaching.org).
Dr. David Sills is the founder and president of Reaching and Teaching International Ministries as well as a missions professor at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. David joined the faculty of SBTS after serving as a missionary in Ecuador. While with the International Mission Board, he served as a church planter and general evangelist among the Highland Quichua people in the Andes and as a seminary professor at the Ecuadorian Baptist Theological Seminary. He also served as Rector and professor of the Baptist seminary as a missionary with Global Outreach International. In addition to leadership training and seminary ministry that has taken him throughout Latin America and as far away as Nepal, David has started and pastored churches in both the United States and Ecuador.
