My name is David Ritsema. I currently serve as the Senior Pastor of the First Baptist Church Waxahachie. I have been to Israel several times leading church and academic groups.
I am also an academic with three degrees in biblical studies, including B. A. Chrisitan Ministry, M. Div in Theology (George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University), and a PhD in New Testament.
I am adjunct professor in the Graduate School of Ministry at Dallas Baptist University, B. H. Carroll Theological Institute, and taught in the doctorate program at George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University.
