Speaker: Dr. David R. Shumate

David Shumate lives in Phoenix, Arizona, and is the General Director of MGMI (formerly Mexican Gospel Mission). He holds a law degree from Harvard (1986) where he was attending when he and his wife, Linda, accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior. He subsequently received the Master of Divinity (1993) and Doctor of Philosophy degrees (Old Testament Theology, 2001) from Bob Jones University Seminary. He taught in the School of Religion and the Seminary at Bob Jones for eight years (five years full time). David served as Associate Pastor under Dr. John Vaughn at Faith Baptist Church in Taylors, South Carolina for fifteen years. The Shumates are sent out from Faith Baptist Church, but are also associate members at the Mexican Evangelical Baptist Church in Phoenix, Arizona, a bilingual ministry with close ties to MGMI. Dr. Shumate has been involved for many years in providing theological training for national pastors, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The Lord has blessed the Shumates with six children, of whom three still remain at home.



Our schedule will begin on Thursday evening to accommodate any planning to attend the Ohio Pastor Prayer Day at Peniel Bible Camp to be held during the day on Thursday, Oct. 11. Peniel Bible Camp is just 9 miles north of Morrow Bible Church.  There are a few area restaurants available for dinner on Thursday for those planning to stay through to the OBF conference.
