Our senior pastor, Dr. Bruce Engelman, has over 30 years of experience in the Lord's work.
Saved at the age of ten, he would eventually feel the call to preach the Gospel around the age of 15. However, he didn't surrender until around the age of 24 to serve the Lord full time.
Bruce Engelman holds degrees from Westminster College in New Wilmington, PA and Hyles-Anderson College in Crown Point, IN. He has done further studies at Ashland Theological Seminary in Cleveland, OH and holds a Doctorate of Divinity from Southland Baptist College. He taught Bible and journalism at Texas Baptist College in the 1990's.
Pastor Engelman is the co-founder and former senior pastor of the Ressurection Baptist Church outside of Columbus, OH (1988-1997), the Houston Baptist Church in Kingswood, TX (2001-2003), and currently, he has served here at The Baptist Temple from 2006 to the present.
Pastor Engelman is also a national youth athletic speaker through the ministry he founded, Athlete Outreach.
