Late Gordon-Conwell Professor, Alumnus Cited in “Most Effective Preachers” Poll

May 1, 2018— Two widely recognized preaching experts, the late Dr. Haddon W. Robinson, and Gordon-Conwell alumnus, Tim Keller, have been named in Baylor University’s latest poll of the 12 Most Effective Preachers in the English Speaking World.

Dr. Robinson, who died in 2017, served the seminary for 26 years as the Harold John Ockenga Distinguished Professor of Preaching, was Senior Director of the Doctor of Ministry Program and Interim President from 2007 to 2008.

He was also named in an earlier Baylor University poll of most effective preachers, as well as Christianity Today’s “25 Most Influential Preachers of the Past 50 Years” and Preaching magazine’s 2010 list of the “25 Most Influential Preachers of the Past 25 Years.”

Keller, who received a Master of Divinity degree from the seminary in 1975, was the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, NY, and is Chairman of Redeemer City to City, a ministry that plants churches in New York and other global cities.

A prodigious writer, his books include the New York Times bestselling The Reason for God and The Prodigal God, which have sold more than 1 million copies and been translated into 15 languages. He, too, was on Preaching magazine’s 2010 list of most influential preachers.
