Last Sunday, my friend Prentice Meador announced that after 19 years, he will be leaving his post as Senior Minister of the Prestoncrest Church of Christ to enter a new ministry teaching preaching at Lipscomb University.

Prentice is all that a minister can be. He is a scholar, communicator, and pastor. He is distinguished but personal, experienced but still creative. Lipscomb will be blessed immeasurably by his new ministry there.

Those of us who are young ministers couldn’t have a better role model. To Prentice…blessings. To Prestoncrest…blessings. To Lipscomb…shame on you…

just kidding…blessings as well.
