Dr. Tom Zempel – Model of Grace and Truth

by Paul Tautges | April 26, 2016 10:20 am

This past Lord’s Day, a faithful follower of Jesus Christ, co-laborer in calling the church back to biblical discipleship, and new friend entered the glorious reward of faith. Though I cannot say I’ve known Tom for a long time, the conversations we had together the past few years left me with a vivid impression: Tom loved Christ and others. His was a rare combination of grace and truth, kindness and commitment to Scripture. Tom was a pastor and seminary professor who dedicated his life to equipping others to minister the Word faithfully. It is an honor to have called him my brother and friend.

Tom and I resonated with each other in at least three ways.

For these reasons, Tom’s ministry heartbeat was a blessing to all and he will be missed.

P.S. I was really blessed by Doug Bookman’s tribute, Goodbye for Now[1].
