    Keynote speaker: Dr. Robert L. Dean Jr.

    Before coming to West Houston Bible Church, Dr. Dean was the Pastor of Preston City Bible Church in Preston, Connecticut. Prior to that he had served churches in both the Dallas and Houston, Texas areas and has over 35 years of pastoral experience.

    Dr. Dean is a much sought after Bible teacher both in the United States and overseas. He serves on the adjunct faculties of Faith Evangelical Seminary and Oregon Theological Seminary and is the Chairman of the Governing Board for Chafer Theological Seminary. Dr. Dean trained for the ministry at Dallas Theological Seminary where he earned a Th.M. in Hebrew and Old Testament Studies and later returned to pursue a Ph.D. in theological studies with an emphasis in Historical Theology. He also earned an M.A. in Philosophy from the University of St. Thomas (1987) and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Faith Evangelical Seminary (2002). In 1988 he was recognized as an Outstanding Young Man of America, and in 1989 was listed in the Who’s Who in American Christian Leadership.

    Dr. Dean has spent much time in the past 30 years researching the differences between the different basic approaches or models to sanctification. Each model – Reformed, Lutheran, Pentecostal, Keswick, or Chaferian – reflects the theological presuppositions each system has in each area of theology. Most Christians are confused by teaching on the spiritual life because much that is taught in this area is an eclectic stew of inconsistent interpretations.

    Each night of this conference Dr. Dean will focus on the implications of Jesus’ command to “Abide in Me” (John 15:1–7) for understanding the central sanctification passages in Romans, Ephesians, Galatians, and 1 John. The daytime presentations will form the backdrop for understanding these passages. In these three evening messages, Dr. Dean will bring together the results of these presentations to present a view of the spiritual life that is internally consistent and which most accurately fits a free grace gospel and a dispensational view of God the Holy Spirit.
