Ministry Minded Episode 18 with Obbie Tyler Todd

ep 18 obbie todd 1300-min

Episode 18 of “Ministry Minded” features Obbie Tyler Todd

In this episode, Brad is joined by fellow Baptist and church historian, Obbie Tyler Todd, to about talk the failures and successes of the Baptist denomination, the pivotal role creeds and confessions have in the church today, and what it means to be a gospel-centered student minister. We seek to answer questions like: How does the gospel shape our understanding of church history? Are creeds inherently Catholic? Was Jonathan Edwards just a crusty old Puritan? This and much more is covered in this lengthy discussion between Obbie and Brad, a conversation that’s fueled by history and a passion for the gospel.

At the time of this recording, Obbie and his wife Kelly were ministering at Zoar Baptist Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, but they’ve since been transitioned by God to minister at the Haynes Creek campus of First Baptist Church in Covington, Georgia. Obbie is avid writer and excellent thinker. He’s already attained a Master’s in Theology and an M. Div., while also pursuing a Doctoral degree from New Orleans Theological Baptist Seminary. Obbie’s also a rampant blogger but most of his writing can be found on The Majesty’s Men network site, Vernacular. Follow him on Twitter, @obbietyler.

“Adelphós” is greek for “brother”, and so “adelphotés ” is the greek word used in the Bible to refer to the “brotherhood of believers” and the early followers of “the way”, both male and female. We are in the very early stages of building a network of like-minded brothers who seek to make much of Jesus, together.
