We at BtT wish to give a rowdy welcome to Tony Merida, the newest member of Southeastern’s preaching faculty. Merida comes to Southeastern, having previously served as Pastor of Temple Baptist Church in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, as well as Dean of the Chapel and Assistant Professor of Preaching at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. He is married to Kim, with whom he has five children. He is the author of Faithful Preaching: Declaring Scripture with Responsibility, Passion, and Authenticity (B&H) and Orphanology (New Hope Publishers).
Merida joins Danny Akin, Wayne McDill, Greg Heisler, and Bill Curtis on the preaching faculty at SEBTS.
He may or may not look like Vin Diesel with a goatee.
