President-elect Oliver’s First Sermon in Jackson

duboliver275I was privileged to be in attendance last Sunday when Dr. Dub Oliver, President-elect of Union University, preached at First Baptist Church in Jackson TN. Dr. Oliver noted that this was his first time to preach in Jackson, and he preached a moving message on Matthew 14:13-21, the feeding of the 5,000.

I encourage you to listen to the message. Dr. Oliver focused on v. 17 and on how God uses the little we have to accomplish great things for His kingdom. In what one friend called a “Haddon Robinson-esque” way, Dr. Oliver illustrated this central point with an amazing story about the time President George W. Bush visited the little church he was pastoring in Texas. What a story!

I was personally edified by the message and by what it revealed about Dr. Oliver. His reverence for scripture, evangelistic concern, love for people and genuine devotion to Christ were evident. If you are wanting to get to know our new President-elect, this sermon is a great place to start.
