Dr. Haddon RobinsonGreetings! My name is Bryan Galloway. I am the senior pastor of Harvey Oaks Baptist Church in Omaha, NE.

Allow me to explain this blog. It is part of my thesis-project for my Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) degree through Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, MA. My D.Min. track is called The Preacher and the Message“; and it is under the leadership of Dr. Haddon Robinson (see photo on right side of page). I began this program in March of 2004 and graduated in May of 2009.

The theme for the thesis-project is “The Impact of Dietrich Bonhoeffer on Twenty-First Century Preaching and Preachers.” The purpose of this blog is to introduce six areas where Bonhoeffer can make an impact on preachers and preaching.

On top of that, this blog will attempt to receive feedback from preachers and pastors. In other words, as I present the six areas of impact over the next few days and weeks, I will be asking my readers to respond through an evaluation form.

Of course, there may be people who do not know who Bonhoeffer is or they know very little about him. Thus, my first posts will focus on who Dietrich Bonhoeffer and why his life and works are important.

I would love any comments and/or questions about this project. Please comment on any post or e-mail me at bryan@harveyoaksbaptist.org.
