On 25 Years of Albert Mohler at Southern Seminary

This year marks the 25th anniversary of R. Albert Mohler Jr.’s service as president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. For many decades, Dr. Mohler has been an influential figure in my life. Through his visionary leadership, he has shaped the course of the Southern Baptist Convention and, more broadly, evangelicalism.  I have served with Dr. Mohler as a research assistant, faculty member, Dean, and Provost. In each of these roles, I have witnessed, first-hand, his heart for the church and passion for God’s Word.

In this episode of Signposts, I reflect on Dr. Mohler’s influence, life, and leadership, which the Lord has used in so many ways–not least of which is the successful equipping of generations of pastors, scholars, missionaries, and ministry leaders to contend for the faith once for all delivered to the saints as they confront the greatest challenges of our times.

I invite you to listen, and be sure to subscribe to receive future episodes of Signposts.


Only when we see how lost we are, we can find our way again. Only when we bury what’s dead can we experience life again. Only when we lose our religion can we be amazed by grace again.
