FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Regular Baptist Press
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill.—Regular Baptist Press is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. John F. Klem to the position of director. His responsibilities will include providing oversight and direction for the press and networking for strategic ministry growth.
“John is a man who believes deeply that the church is God’s platform for teaching the Word of God,” says John Greening, national representative of Regular Baptist Churches. “That belief translates into a robust vision to ‘resource’ the church with innovative tools to effectively and fully teach the Bible to all ages.”
Klem comes to RBP with a rich background of both pastoral and academic ministry experience. He has held professorships and administrative positions at Virginia Beach Theological Seminary, Northland International University, Piedmont International University, and Clearwater Christian College. He has also pastored churches in Wawarsing, New York; West Chester, Pennsylvania; and Moorhead, Minnesota. Klem received his training for the gospel ministry at Lancaster Bible College (BS), Baptist Bible Seminary (MDiv, ThM), and Central Baptist Theological Seminary (ThD). He is the author of Selah Moments: Meditations on Scripture Applied to Life (edited by Ron Wright) and numerous published articles.
Klem’s ministry philosophy revolves around a high bibliology, a high Christology, the grace of God, and the centrality of the gospel. His approach is a natural fit with RBP’s mission statement, “to glorify God by providing church educational resources that are true to God’s Word and encourage maturity in Christ.”
“The GARBC and its publishing arm, RBP, have been known for their faithful commitment to God’s Word, to Christ, and to the church,” Klem says. “Now, at a time when we’re being pressed from a number of different avenues, we have an opportunity to raise that flag even higher, rally around it, and develop a philosophy that emphasizes strong churches and equips them for the future.”
