Hello. I’m Mike Lester, chair of the undergraduate ministry department @ Veritas Baptist College. Additionally, I am the director of student services. I enjoy teaching Bible, theology, and practical ministry classes. I’ve been involved in higher education since 1995, serving 26 years previously at West Coast Baptist College in Lancaster, CA.
I enjoy pouring my life into the next generation of Christian leaders. But, I don’t want to lose touch with those co-laborers just because they graduate! This site is part of my mission to continue to provide trusted resources so believers can rightly divide and apply the Word of God.
My wife, Jen, and I have been married since 1995. We enjoy serving in our local church. We have five daughters – two are married, one is in college, and two are still at home. We also have two grandchildren who affectionately refer to us as “Pops” and “Lollie.”
I was raised in a preacher’s home. Both my granddad and great-granddad were also preachers and communicators of biblical truth. I’m thankful that God has allowed me the opportunity to walk in their steps.
This site is an outlet for my passions of Bible, theology, and life. Several times a month I publish content designed to help believers rightly divide and know God’s Word. Thanks for stopping by. If you find the content helpful, I’d love to hear from you.
