ayy Naa 1 (a lone Smuth SENIOR PASTOR DR. HAYES WICKER Though I do not speak in many other churches on weekends, | felt led to accept the invitation to preach at the Calvary Baptist Church in Covington, Kentucky this weekend. They are celebrating Heritage Week as one of the Midwest's leading lighthouse ministries where the famed Bible teacher, Dr. Warren Wiersbe, was pastor. They have greatly influenced Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati. You will be blessed to hear Dr. Kevin Smith inall three services. Dr. Smith is described by Dr. Danny Akin, President of Southeastern Seminary, as “a phenomenal preacher, one of the finest and most outstanding men | have ever met.” Kevin is the Executive Director of the Baptist Convention of Maryland and Delaware and formerly Professor of Church History and Preaching at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He was also a teaching pastor at Highview Baptist Church, where Eric Yeldell served as Worship Pastor. Kevin is, as Vance Havner described, ‘A preacher with the mind of a scholar, the heart of a child, and the fide of a rhinoceros, who has toughened his hide without hardening his heart.” | love to preach and | love those who preach and practice what they preach. Kevin originally was an auditor in New York City as a specialist in tax law, then he was called to vocational ministry. He pastored for 15 years and was the Martin Luther King, Jr. Fellow at the Seminary. With an exceptional understanding of cultural issues and how to address them from a gospel perspective, he has served as President of the Kentucky Baptist Convention and is one of the most sought after African American preachers in America.
