Meador leaving Dallas pulpit to serve as Lipscomb’s Baxter Chair of Preaching
Meador, a member of Lipscomb’s board of trustees, recently completed 19 years as senior minister of the Prestoncrest church in Dallas. He and his wife, Barbara, also have worked with congregations in Tennessee, Illinois, California, Washington and Missouri.
He appears regularly on the American Religious Townhall telecast, a program seen on 300 stations across the nation.
“Brother Baxter was Dr. Meador’s minister, mentor and friend,” said Craig Bledsoe, Lipscomb’s provost. “In this part-time position, Dr. Meador will train ministers and other students who will be going into various ministries.”
Meador will relocate to Nashville to join the Lipscomb faculty in August. He will be the second minister, after Marlin Connelly, to hold the Baxter Chair of Preaching, which was created by the Hillsboro church in Nashville in 1982.
