Guest Lecturers

Guest Speakers

From time to time, we have guest speakers at DRC. We feel blessed to have had many amazing people share our pulpit. Here are just a few of them:


Dr. Vincent Bacote

sunday_guest_bacote_200Associate Professor of Theology
Director of Center for Applied Christian Ethics
On faculty since Spring 2000

Ph.D. - Drew University (Theological and Religious Studies, 2002) M.Phil. - Drew University (1999) M.Div. - Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (emphasis in Urban Ministry, 1994) B.S. - The Citadel (Biology, 1987)

Dr. Bacote is married to Shelley and they have two beautiful daughters.

One of Abraham Kuyper's most famous quotes is: "There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is sovereign over all, does not cry: Mine!" This quote gets to the heart of the way I view theology and the Christian faith. It is important to recognize that our faith is not reserved for some kind of Christian ghetto. It ought to impact every facet of our lives and society. I hope to create this kind of passion in students as they study theology, a truly exciting subject.
