D. James Kennedy Retires

Evangelicals know him as the author of Evangelism Explosion. Reformed believers know him as a driving force behind the resurgence of reformed theology in America. The people of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida know him as their pastor of 48 years. I am of course referring to Dr. D. James Kennedy who announced today that he is retiring from the church that he founded in 1949.

What a blessing Dr. Kennedy has been to the church. Godspeed to him.

    A true champion of the Christian faith. One of the greatest blessings in my life was going to an Evangelism Explosion class at my church. I have been blessed through the years by Dr Kennedy’s sermons. He will be missed in the pulpit. May God bless him in his future endeavors for the Kingdom and the well deserved relaxation of retirement. I do hope that he will be able to continue to be an active voice in the public arena.
