I am at least a third generation free-church Protestant of the Baptist variety. I cut my theological teeth under the preaching and teaching of ultra-dispensational (a la C. I. Scofield), verse-by-verse exegete, William D. Lawrence (not the one at DTS). Interest in ecclesiology was planted by a church split during my early adult years, nurtured by my subsequent participation in a church plant, and practiced in ministry creation at an established church.
