Dr. Getz is a graduate of Moody Bible Institute, earned a BA from Rocky Mountain College, an MA from the Wheaton Graduate School and a Ph.D. from New York University. He has served as a professor at Moody Bible Institute and Dallas Theological Seminary. 

After 20 years in the academic world, Dr.

Getz became involved in church planting and, in 1972, launched the Fellowship Bible Church movement. Today, some 30,000 people worship in approximately 12 churches in the Dallas area alone and hundreds of Fellowship churches throughout the United States trace their roots back to church planting efforts in the Dallas area.

He has authored “Elders and Leaders: God’s Plan for Leading the Church” and he and his son, Kenton, have recently completed a book entitled “The Measure of a Young Man.” He has also authored the “Men of Character” series published by Broadman and Holman. These books feature “Principles to Live By” that come from the lives of biblical personalities both in the Old and New Testaments. 

Dr. Getz also hosts a daily radio program called Renewal which is aired nationally and is designed to unfold personal stories of people who have been transformed by the love and grace of Jesus Christ. Renewal can be heard daily on Sirius/SM Family Net Radio. 

Dr. Getz now serves as President of the Center for Church Renewal and has just completed a 7-year Bible project using the Holman Christian Standard Bible. The “Life Essentials Study Bible” is the first Multi-Media Study Bible which contains 1,500 principles from Genesis to Revelation. Using QR codes associated with each biblical principle, the reader can access over 250 hours of video teaching on these principles by Dr. Getz. He also airs a 2-minute daily feature on the Moody Radio Network called “A Principle to Live By” which can also be accessed by going to LEBible.com.

Roy Exum: Why I Am Thankful 2014

Over 40 years ago I was a young sports writer when I came up with the notion of setting daily things aside, just for one day, and writing about why “I Am Thankful.” Every Thanksgiving I come up with my list and it is as much about me as it is about my gratitude for all things great and small.
