June 19th: Brandon Kiesling, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
Brandon Kiesling has a past: He spent time in jail for drug-related crimes. But later he was transformed by the grace of God when he accepted Christ as his Savior.
Following his salvation experience, Brandon followed God’s call to Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, which is one of six Southern Baptist seminaries across the country our church supports through the Cooperative Program. Because of the Cooperative Program, these seminaries can charge students much less to attend.
Brandon completed his Master of Divinity degree in 2013 and has continued working on a Doctor of Philosophy degree.
While at Southwestern, Brandon has developed a passion for evangelism. He shares the Gospel personally where he lives in Fort Worth. He also leads other students to share. This is one of the school’s outreach programs called “Going the Second Mile.”
Our church is having a part in Brandon’s Christian ministry now, but we’ll also have a small part in his lifetime of ministry, as he continues to use his training in decades ahead.
Today, let’s thank God for the claim He has on Brandon’s life, and for the promise of this young man’s service ahead. Let’s pray that many will come to Christ through his ministry.
