THE OFFICE OF THE DEAN
PASTOR LEONARD O. GRIFFIN, BA, MDIV.
25 MORRIS STREET
CHARLESTON, SC 29403
Greetings Pastors, Delegates, Friends, and Visitors,
On behalf of the Dean's Staff and myself, I am delighted, appreciative, and excited for the vote of confidence extended to me and to us to serve in the Dean's Office! Thank you for allowing me the AWESOME privilege to labor for the King of kings in this capacity!
President Dr. Toney Parks and I have been in constant prayer, research and dialogue about the direction the Lord wants the SCBCCE to go, as we strive to emphasize the Theme: "WORSHIP MATTERS: Exalting the Savior, Equipping the Saints, and Enlisting the Lost Through Worship Renewal While Ministering to the Needs of a Changing Culture". The writer of the Gospel of John penned and provided some poignant, prolific, and penetrating statements that fell from the lips of our Savior and Lord. In John 4:23-24, the following words are recorded in the New International Version (NIV): "Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth."
These words are poignant in that these words stir our hearts and souls to strive to worship the Living God. These words are prolific in that they produce an abundance of desire to worship. These words are penetrating, as they cause believers and nonbelievers alike to probe within us to ensure that our worship is for real and that our worship is centered upon the True and Living God!
I am extremely excited to explore this theme with you, the delegates and constituents of The SCBCCE. I eagerly and enthusiastically encourage all who are striving to serve the Lord effectively, to worship the Lord abundantly, and to spread the Word of God widely, to join us during our Winter Workshops, during the Annual Sessions held in July, and whenever the opportunity for Christian Education arises!
Welcome to our website, welcome to cutting edge Christian Education, and you are welcome to grow with us as we are: "Exalting the Savior, Equipping the Saints, and Enlisting the Lost Through Worship Renewal While Ministering to the Needs of a Changing Culture"!
