A Giant in the Faith

This past Sunday, Dr. Paul Hiebert a professor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School passed away to be with the Lord. You can read the Trinity’s news regarding his passing here. You can also read President Greg Waybright’s letter.

He was one of the professors at Trinity that helped me form some of my missiological paradigm. He will be greatly missed by so many Christians.

It is in times like these I wonder to myself the number of people that one person can make in a lifetime. I cannot even imagine the impact he has made on people’s lives, not only through his classes, writings, books, but most importantly by his life.

Dr. Hiebert believed in the discipleship process that he housed seminarians at his home. Pastor Jimmy had the privilege of living with Dr. Hiebert for 1 year. One thing I remember Pastor Jimmy sharing was about how he taught the people in the house about learning to live life. Dr. Hiebert lived it well.

We will wait until heaven for the big reunion.
