A Gospel-Shaped Legacy

Pastor Daniel Bassett

At our recent 75th anniversary thanksgiving service, Pastor Daniel Bassett (class of 2014), challenged us to think about the legacy we will leave behind. Preaching from Acts 20:17-27, he described how the Apostle Paul called to himself the Ephesian elders to establish his legacy and that as we read the passage, we see that Paul left a gospel-shaped legacy that we would do well to emulate. Daniel preached on the three things that are crucial in establishing a gospel-shaped legacy: the character of the gospel preacher, the content of the gospel preached, and the commitment to gospel preaching.
