This Sunday (11/23): Rev. Paul Roberts

Posted by David Lewicki in Uncategorized. | Leave a comment |

NDPC is delighted to welcome to our pulpit this Sunday, the Rev. Paul Roberts Sr., the President of Johnson C. Smith Theological Seminary (JCSTS) in Atlanta, GA, a position he has held since the spring of 2010. Johnson C. Smith Theological Seminary is one of the ten theological schools of the Presbyterian Church (USA), and the only one that is historically African-American.

Paul is a native of Stamford, CT, and grew up in Bradenton, FL. Paul graduated from Princeton University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Architecture and African-American Studies. After working for eight years in advertising in New York City, he went to Atlanta and earned his Master of Divinity degree with a concentration in New Testament Studies at Johnson C. Smith Seminary. Paul also is an Academic Fellow of the Ecumenical Institute of Bossey in Switzerland.

Beginning in 1997 and for the next 13 years, Paul was the pastor of Church of the Master (PCUSA), a church founded in 1965 as an intentionally interracial congregation. During that period he was active in the work of the Presbytery of Greater Atlanta, served on several civic boards, and became president of the Seminary’s alumni association. Before being elected President/Dean at JCSTS, he served one year as the interim leader of the Seminary.

Under Paul’s leadership, the seminary tripled enrollment, expanded and reorganized its trustee board, set forth a new vision and strategic plan, and is attracting new friends and supporters.  He is a contributing writer to Pastoral Care: A Case Study Approach by Orbis Books in 1998, and to Feasting on the Gospels by Westminster/John Knox Press released in December 2013.  Paul and his wife, Nina, have three children, ages 18, 13, and 11.

What causes someone to get up and leave their life in Atlanta to go and live, work, and serve others in Madagascar? This Sunday, we are privileged to share an in-depth conversation with one of our own members, Jan Heckler, who is on leave from her mission service in Madagascar. We will talk about how she heard God’s call, how God’s call to “go” is given to each of us, and we will hear what the day to day life of a modern-day mission co-worker is like. All are welcome to join Jan for a potluck lunch immediately after the 11am service.

Worship services begin at 8:30 and 11am.

Christian Education for all ages begins at 9:30am. We offer several thoughtful Adult education classes, as well as classes for youth and children of all ages. Our staffed nursery is open all morning for our babies.
