|I am simultaneously saddened and overjoyed to report that long-time Dallas Theological Seminary professor J.
Dwight Pentecost passed into the presence of the Lord on April 28 at 4:00 pm while at forum rehab in Dallas.
His condition began to deteriorate Sunday night and early Monday morning.
He had just turned 99 four days earlier.
He was/is a beautiful Christian, scholar, and teacher.
He made an indelible and eternal impact upon my life, theology, worldview, approach to the Bible, ministry philosophy, and career trajectory like no other pastor, scholar, or theologian.
The ministries that I am directly involved in, the College of Biblical Studies and Sugar Land Bible Church, have doctrinal statements that are based to a large degree on his writings, as derived from the Bible.
One of the great privileges of my life, graciously given to me by God, was to study under him.
He simply cannot be replaced.
Please see the
to his life and legacy.
[You are invited to watch Dr.
Pentecost’s memorial service

CST. A recorded version of the memorial service will also be available on the tribute page beginning Thursday, May 8th. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial donations be made to Dallas Theological Seminary in honor of Dr.
