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.

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.
