For almost two decades, providing able men has been a hallmark of Pastor Duttry's leadership and vision for First Baptist Church. A great many men and women have gone into full-time ministry during these years. I have been blessed to watch this training and sending take place both under a microscope and through a telescope. For eight years from a distance, April and I continued to watch this church send out people into the harvest fields. And we have also had two opportunities to watch this training and sending take place up-close and in-person.
