As the historically acclaimed Father of Modern Missions, William Carey was an evangelist, linguist, pastor, botanist, educator, and at times a diplomat. I aspire to that kind of broad-minded philosophy and would be happy to be known as one of his descendants.
We live in South Africa in the village of Makhongele planting a church among Tsongas, Vendas, and the occasional Shona. Our church, planted in 2008, worships in Tsonga. A small Bible college has also sprouted for training Africans for ministry in rural areas.
As to my personality, I am a reluctant child of my times fighting against the near omnipresent hastiness contemporary society and personal proclivity have bestowed on me. But I’m helped in my journey by an outstanding companion who homeschools our four children as well as serves the church.
Theologically, I am a confessional Baptist who likes evangelism, churchplanting, premillennialism, Abraham Kuyper, and of course, William Carey.
Other peculiarities include an interest in classic and enduring culture (hence the reference to Tolkien), hermeneutics, linguistics, and logic. You can reach me via the comments or at sethmeyersATodbm.org.
