On Tuesday, March 20 at 7 p.m. in Hayes Ministry Center, Dr. John Mark Yeats will deliver the Second Annual College of Christian Studies Lectureship in Theology and Culture.  Dr. Yeats will lecture on “Race and the Promise of the Gospel: Why Racial Reconciliation and Diversity in our Congregations is a Gospel Mandate.”

He earned his Ph.D. in church history from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and also holds degrees from Southern Seminary, Oxford University, and Criswell College.

He is married to Angie, and they have four children: Briley, Sean, Cadie, and Jackson.

Yeats is the son of Dr. John L. Yeats who serves as the Executive Director of the Missouri Baptist Convention and for over 20 years as the recording secretary of the Southern Baptist Convention.
