Dr. Scott Pace, the Reverend A.E. and Dora Johnson Hughes chair of Christian ministry and associate professor of applied ministry, delivered the chapel message at Oklahoma Baptist University Wednesday, Oct. 5. His message was titled “Listening to the Heart of Jesus” and came from John 17. It continued the fall chapel series theme of “Prayer: Beseeching the Lord through the Prayers of the New Testament.”
“God is glorified in the salvation that Jesus purchased,” he said. “Jesus ultimately revealed the person of God when He died, but He also redeemed the people of God when he died.”
Pace joined the Herschel H. Hobbs College of Theology and Ministry as the Jewell and Joe L. Huitt Assistant Professor of Applied Ministry in 2009. In the fall of 2011, he was named the Reverend A.E. and Dora Johnson Hughes Chair of Christian Ministry. In 2014, he was awarded the “Promising Teacher Award” for excellence and demonstrated potential, the highest honor a junior faculty member can receive. In 2015, he received promotion to associate professor and was granted senior faculty status as well. He also serves as the Chair of the Christian and Cross-Cultural Ministry Department.
