                                     Rarely does a College have the opportunity to highlight one of its main emphases
                                   and honor a distinguished leader in one event. On January 29, 2008, The Baptist
                                   College of Florida dedicated its new Preaching and Pastoral ministries Lab and
                                   honored Dr. Jerry E. Oswalt for a career of distinguished service.
                                     Oswalt served from 1991-2005 at BCF as Vice Presi-
     Dr. and Mrs. Jerry E. Oswalt
                                   dent for Academic Affairs, Professor of Preaching and
Dean of the Chapel. Tom Kinchen, BCF President, described Oswalt as “a skillful
preacher, a compassionate pastor, and an exemplary professor.”
   The Jerry E. Oswalt Preaching and Pastoral Ministry Lab will serve as the site
for regular college classes as well as special conferences and seminars. The lab will
serve as the home of the college’s recently formed Baptist Center for Expository
   A special service of praise, worship, and dedication was held in the R. G. Lee
Chapel on the BCF campus. Among those participating in the service along with                    Deborah Oswalt Jones

Oswalt and Kinchen were Dr. Mark Long, Assistant Professor of New Testament and
Greek and former student of Dr. Oswalt’s; David and Deborah, Oswalt’s children; and other members of the
                                   college family.
                                     In a message entitled ‘Partaking of the Glory’ Oswalt
                                   encouraged the congregation with Scripture from 1 Pe-
                                   ter 5:1-11. He assured the body of Christ that they will
                                   partake of the glory that is to be revealed and motivated
                                   them to feed God’s people, lead people in the Scrip-
                                   tures, and bleed for Christ’s sake. All three of these
                                   characteristics describe the person who will surely par-
                                   take in the glory of God.
          Jerry Oswalt and           The service culminated with President Kinchen pre-             David Oswalt
     BCF President Tom Kinchen    senting a dedication plaque with the inscription “Jerry E.
     Oswalt Preaching and Pastoral Ministry Lab” to be prominently displayed on the new building.
