Dr. Jerry Falwell

It was two years ago today that the Lord called his servant, Dr. Jerry Falwell, home to be with Him. Despite what people think they know about Dr. Falwell, he was one of the most compassionate and loving human beings that I ever had the privilege of meeting.

Dr. Falwell was no doubt outspoken and active in the political realm at one time. However, his latter years were dedicated to the advancement of Liberty University and under his leadership, Liberty achieved many milestones. One of the most notable was the calling of a former Muslim to be President of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. Another milestone was achieving 10,000 students on the Lynchburg campus, in addition to another 25,000 enrolled in Distance Learning courses.
