Requirements for Credibility in Ministry
Dr. Roger Raymer, Adjunct Professor in Pastoral Ministries and Senior Pastor of Lake Ridge Bible Church, offers that credentials do not equal credibility.
Dr. Roger Raymer received his bachelors from UCLA in 1969, followed by his Th.M. from Dallas Theological Seminary in 1979. He has served as faculty at DTS since 1985 and was the Alumni Director from 1985 until 1991. He has served for 18 years as Senior Pastor of Lake Ridge Bible Church, transitioning in mid-2017 to an Associate Pastor role, and still works as an adjunct professor for Doctor of Ministry Studies here at DTS. He also serves in Pastoral Care ministry with Camino Global. He and his wife Judy have three grown children: Stephen (married to Lindsey), Kathryn (married to Joe), and Mark (married to Michael Ann). They have been blessed with five granchildren: Anna Claire, Ella Rose, Sophie, Jachin, and Chaplin.
