About the blog
Gulf Coast Pastor will primarily be about spiritual themes. It will cover subjects in the Bible, the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), and hopefully articles that will encourage young pastors and new believers in Jesus Christ. I am a big believer in us knowing what we believe and why we believe it. I believe in keeping things simple so the common man can easily understand. I’m pretty common myself.
I enjoy gardening, growing and grafting fruit trees, and the outdoors, so some of that may slip in. I grew up hunting, fishing, trapping. I enjoy history. “The earth is the Lord’s, and all it’s fullness” (Psalm 24:1), so I reserve the right to post on most any subject.
I admit I’m not the best at grammar. But if you understand what I write, then maybe my grammar’s not so bad after all.
I enjoy dry humor and that is not always easily conveyed in print. I will not always use the :-) symbol when I’m joking. So if my comments upset you, consider that I may be just kidding. Or, that I’m getting old and crotchety. But I attempt to “speak the truth in love” (Galatians 4:15).
David R. Brumbelow is pastor of a small Southern Baptist church in Highlands, Texas, USA (Northside Baptist Church) and a graduate of Sam Houston High School, Houston; East Texas Baptist University, Marshall (B.A.); and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas (M.Div.).
David is the author of a book about his dad, The Wit and Wisdom of Pastor Joe Brumbelow, Hannibal Books, 2005. Read my book and you’ll probably know more than you ought to know about me and my family :-).
Update: He is also author of Ancient Wine and the Bible: The Case for Abstinence, Free Church Press.
I grew up in a preacher’s home. My two brothers are also pastors. I believe it is a great privilege to serve as pastor.
