The Laymen are very excited to have Dr. Chris Griggs as our guest. He is pastor of Denver Baptist Church, and is coming to ask the question, what shapes your preaching? Chris attended Wake Forest University and he received his M.Div at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and later received his Doctorate of Ministry from the same school. What makes this even more exciting for the Laymen is that he is our pastor.
By the time a preacher walks behind a pulpit he has walked through many "Gates." These gates determine what perspective that preacher is coming from. Is he coming to glorify Christ? Is he coming to seek the lost? Or is he coming to make others comfortable? All these questions are asked as he is preparing his sermon, and it will determine what is said behind the pulpit.
Dr. Chris Griggs is coming from over twenty years of ministry. He started as a youth pastor and then felt called to Pastor a church. He has been at Denver Baptist for ten years. You will really enjoy hearing some of the stories he tells us, especially about his first sermon.
