The Path That Brought One Man to Becoming a Southern Baptist Minister
Pastor James L. Pittman, Jr. is the lead under shepherd for the congregation of New Hope Community Church in Platine, Illinois. That’s actually Troy’s old stomping grounds, as he grew up in a bunch of towns all around that area of suburban Chicago. And Pastor Pittman knows the Maryland neck-of-the-woods pretty well himself, having studied premed at Howard University in Washington, D.C. But geography is not why he’s on this edition of the Faith Debate. Theology is why he joins by telephone. It’s an issue of such great importance that it’s causing church splits, denominational division, and longtime friendships to be called into question. But before we get into all of that, we take a moment to let you know more about this minister of the Gospel.
