Voddie Baucham has been called an “evangelist to intellectuals.” He is a husband, father, author, pastor, church planter, professor and an apologist. His unique blend of sound biblical exposition and cutting-edge relevance make him one of the most unique and compelling voices in modern evangelical circles. He has rapidly become one of the most sought-after preachers of his generation.
Voddie’s journey to Christ and the gospel ministry was anything but usual. He was born in Los Angeles, California and raised by a single mother. He did not hear the gospel until his freshman year in college. It was there that He came to faith in Christ. As a student-athlete at Rice University, Voddie responded to God’s call on his life and entered the gospel ministry. As a result, he left Rice University his senior year to pursue theological training at Houston Baptist University. He graduated from H.B.U. with a B.A. in Christianity and Sociology. From there he earned a Master’s degree from Southwestern Seminary, and a Doctorate from Southeastern Seminary; and has done additional Post-graduate study at the University of Oxford, England.
Dr. Baucham has accepted the position of Dean of the Seminary at African Christian University (ACU) in Lusaka, Zambia. He, his faithful wife, Bridget, and their seven youngest children made the bold move from the heart of Texas to the heart of Africa in August, 2015.
He has authored numerous books, academic journals, and magazine articles. Voddie and his wife Bridget have been married since 1989. They have nine children, and currently live in Spring, TX
