We are so excited to welcome the Rev. Dr. David P. King to First Church on Sunday, October 17! He will lead our conversation in Forum at 9:00 am in the parlor (in-person only, masks required), and will be our guest preacher in worship.
Dr. King is the Karen Lake Buttrey Director of the Lake Institute on Faith & Giving at the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at IUPUI, where he also serves as an assistant professor of philanthropic studies. A historian and ordained minister in the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (CBF), King is the author of the book God’s Internationalists: World Vision and the Age of Evangelical Humanitarianism. The book, which Dr. King will discuss in Forum (9:00 am in the church parlor), traces the history of World Vision, which, over the past 70 years, has grown from a small missionary agency to the largest Christian humanitarian organization in the world. CLICK HERE to visit the University of Pennsylvania Press’s website to learn more about this fascinating book.
Also on Sunday, October 17: Dr. King will be our guest preacher in worship at 10:30 am. His sermon is entitled Being Together: The Promise of New Things.
Dr. King earned a B.A. in history from Samford University, a Master of Divinity degree from Duke Divinity School, and a Ph.D. from Emory University.
We hope you’ll join us in welcoming him to First Church!
