I wrote my first post for this blog back in November 2008. I had recently begun teaching logic and Christian worldview to homeschooled students and the blog was just a hobby hosted on my business website. A few years later, in 2013, the blog got its own home at DavidVogel.net. A couple years after that, I published my first book, The Truth With Love. Then, last summer, I got the chance to devote a couple days per week just to writing and podcasting here. (To those friends whose generosity made that possible, you know who you are. Thank you, more than I can say.)
I am now excited to announce the next step in God’s developing plan: Lord willing, I’ll be going to seminary next year!
If all goes well, I will be enrolling in Reformed Theological Seminary’s M.Div. program. I’m excited about the prospect of learning more and making connections that will hopefully bear great fruit as I continue writing and speaking to equip Christians to understand and articulate the truths of God’s word.
That being said, seminary is expensive and time-consuming, so I’m going to be hunkering down during the coming months to take on some extra employment to ensure Leah and I, and the new little Vogel who’s coming in July(!), are on a sound financial footing as I head back to school. That means I’m going to be reluctantly scaling back my writing and podcasting here at DavidVogel.net. I plan to continue posting new material both during the coming year and as I go through the M.Div. program, but I can’t be sure how consistent I will be. I am hopeful I’ll still be able to post multiple times per month, but, frankly, I’m just not sure what my schedule is going to look like.
To ensure you’re notified of new content when I do post it, you can always subscribe to my blog posts using the signup box at the end of this post. And, of course, you can subscribe to my YouTube channel and to Answers for Ambassadors on your favorite podcast player to be notified of new material.
If you would like to partner with me as I head through seminary, I am deeply appreciative of one-time or recurring gifts at my donations page. More than anything, though, I would ask for your prayers. Paul reminds us that we may sow the seed but God gives the increase, and I hope you will join me in praying that God will provide all that is needed to prepare for seminary, to succeed in it, and to bear good fruit on the other side.
