Calvin Miller, Southern Baptist pastor, author and speaker, suddenly passed away on Sunday. Miller had been ill only a few days before passing. Ed Stetzer has a great tribute posted on his blog. The tribute states:
A native of Enid, Oklahoma, Dr. Miller was a faithful servant of the church. Though he only pastored two churches in his lifetime, his 25-years of service at Westside Church in Omaha, Nebraska, shaped his ministry and that of many others. Under his leadership, Westside grew from 10 members to over 2,500 when he left to join the faculty of Southwestern Seminary in 1991. Since 1999, Dr. Miller had served at Beeson Divinity School (one of my alma maters).
Miller was scheduled to speak at Louisiana College’s annual Sanders Lecture Series in September. Recent speakers for the annual three day lecture series has included Don Whitney (watch here), Paige Patterson, Jim Shaddix, and Craig Blomberg.
