Truett-McConnell College Director of Church Relations, Dr. David Drake
The Church Relations position:
The Church Relations position at Truett-McConnell College has one priority in mind, to be a ‘Barnabas’ (an encourager) in the lives of pastors and those in vocational Christian ministry. Acts 11 reveals the account of the sending of Barnabas to Antioch by the church leaders in Jerusalem. Verse 23 states: “And when he had come and witnessed the grace of God, he rejoiced and began to encourage them all with resolute heart to remain true to the Lord.”
It is our goal to build relationships for the purpose of:
Bio of Dr. David Drake, Director of Church Relations
Dr. David Drake came on staff with Truett-McConnell College in July, 2015. In his position, his ministry is to focus on building relationships with pastors, churches and associations throughout the Georgia Baptist family. In the attempt to serve over 3,600 Georgia Baptist Churches in Georgia, the task of the Director of Church Relations will first and foremost be “To be a Barnabas,” an encourager.
Dr. Drake is a graduate from the Criswell College in Dallas, Texas (1978), Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas (1981), and Luther Rice Seminary in Atlanta, Ga. (1989). He has pastored for over 30 years in churches in Texas, Florida and Georgia.
Words from Dr. Drake:
“Ministry in today’s culture can be a great challenge for anyone. As unsettling as that may sound, the rewards and encouragement received through a ministry to others is invaluable. Seeing lives change is worth more than any difficulty we may face. Peaks and valleys seem too often to be the theme song of today’s pastoral ministry. Life and it's various issues whether in ministry or not was never meant to be perfect, just lived! Trust me, the apostle Paul tells us in Philippians 1:29: ‘For to you it has been granted for Christ’s sake, not only to believe in him but also to suffer for His sake.’ Though your steps may take you into some precarious times and places, be assured the Lord is with you.”
“As I see the Church Relations position playing out, it is 'boots on the ground' engaging pastors and churches on the front lines of their lives and ministries. It is iron sharpening iron, connecting with them in love. The Lord Jesus said: ‘By this shall all men know you are my disciples if you have love for one another.’ What is the old adage? ‘People don’t care that you know until they know that you care!’ Pastors, all over Georgia and perhaps the Southeast, from the Church Relations office of TMC will know that we care as we come to them as an encourager.”
Feel free to contact Dr. David Drake in the office of Church Relations at Truett-McConnell College if we can assist you in any way.
There are many books published every year dealing with the reality of the down, defeated and discouraged pastor.
