Men's Rally Last Minute Change

Our hearts go out to Al and Mary Mohler. Mary's dad is at the edge of death, and she and Al are holding vigil over him as I write. Hence, Al will not be able to be with us this weekend for the Men's Rally.

The good news is that my dear friend, Dr. Randy Stinson, is stepping in for Al at the last minute. Randy Stinson is the executive director for The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW), an evangelical organization that seeks to promote the biblical teachings on the complementary differences between men and women, created equal in the image of God. He has served as a senior pastor and in various other church staff positions.

Randy received a B.A. from The University of South Florida, in Tampa, Florida, an M.Div. from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina, a Th.M. and a Ph.D. in Systematic Theology from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

He has served as executive director of CBMW since 2000. Since then he has spoken at conferences alongside such evangelical leaders as Paige Patterson, R. Kent Hughes, and Wayne Grudem and has addressed faculty and students at a number of evangelical colleges and seminaries. Randy has appeared on Fox News, Nickelodeon's Nick News program, Religion and Ethics Weekly (PBS), and he has also been featured on over 75 radio shows, including Janet Parshall's America and The Albert Mohler Program.

He also serves as Assistant Professor of Family and Gender Studies at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

Randy has been married to his wife Danna for fourteen years, and they are the parents of five children: Gunnar and Georgia (twin eight year-olds), Fisher (seven years), Eden (six years) and Payton (four years).
