On June 23, at the Tennessee Church of God Camp Meeting, G. Dennis and DeRosa McGuire were formally inducted into the prestigious Pentecostal Theological Seminary Hall of Prophets. The Hall of Prophets is reserved for Pentecostal ministers whose ministry for Christ has been distinctive, honorable, noteworthy and meritorious. The induction establishes a fully funded endowed scholarship of at least twenty-five thousand dollars and will serve as a perpetual source of funding scholarships and support for deserving PTS students for ministry. The induction was hosted by the Tennessee Camp Meeting, under the leadership of Bishop Wayne Dority, administrative bishop.
Dr. Michael L. Baker, President of PTS officiated the formal induction with ministry tributes provided by Bishop Wayne Dority, and Dr. Tim Hill, Church of God General Overseer. Dr. McGuire has served the Church of God in a broad spectrum of ministry positions, including pastor, administrative bishop, Executive Council member, Executive Committee member and General Overseer. On behalf of the seminary Board of Trustees, Dr. Baker formally inducted the McGuires and presented them with a special plaque that chronicles their ministry of more than fifty-nine years. A duplicate plaque is placed in the Pentecostal Theological Seminary Gallery of Pentecost designed to preserve the legacy of those whose consecration and dedication to God and the Church is worthy of emulation. A special luncheon was convened with many other special ministry tributes expressed by close friends, family, and ministry colleagues.
Congratulations to the McGuires on this momentous induction into the Pentecostal Theological Seminary Hall of Prophets.
