Dr. Voddie T. Baucham, Jr

The keynote speaker will be Dr. Voddie T. Baucham, Jr. a former pastor, author, professor, and church planter. Dr. Baucham currently serves as Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia. Dr. Baucham’s area of emphasis is Cultural Apologetics. Whether teaching on classical apologetic issues like the validity and historicity of the Bible, or the resurrection of Christ; or teaching on biblical manhood/ womanhood, marriage and family, he helps ordinary people understand the significance of thinking and living biblically in every area of life. Dr. Baucham holds degrees from Houston Baptist University (BA in Christianity/BA in Sociology), Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (M.Div.), Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (D.Min.), an honorary degree from Southern California Seminary (D.D.), and additional post-graduate study at the University of Oxford, England (Regent’s Park College).


Dr. John R. Lincoln (Dick).

Dr. Lincoln grew up in Tallahassee, Florida. After four years of living with his Christian roommate at the University of South Florida, he surrendered his life to Christ two weeks before graduation. Within a few months, God changed the direction of his life from law school to the ministry. He entered Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and received his Master’s and Doctor of Ministry. After graduation, Dr. Lincoln held a pastorate in Lilburn, Georgia for three years. In 1978, he was called to be the third pastor of Shandon Baptist Church in Columbia, South Carolina since 1924. He enjoyed a long and satisfying ministry there, retiring in 2017 after 38 years. After retirement, Dr. Lincoln and his wife, Patty moved to Greenville South Carolina. They are enjoying their new home, church, neighbors and lifestyle while staying close enough to visit their two grown children and three grandchildren.
