In our circles of Texas Baptist interim pastors, most of us have known Linn Self as an interim pastor par excellence for his “temporary shepherding” of eleven churches. Of course, he had a vital ministry before this, which included serving four churches as their installed pastor. Then, he followed a new calling into theological education. Linn served as the president of the South Texas School of Christian Studies for almost a decade. The school, recently renamed Stark College and Seminary, honored Linn with an annual lecture named in his honor. Now, they honor him again with his serving as this year’s commencement speaker on May 13, 2019. During the graduation services, Linn will receive his own well-deserved honorary doctorate. Congratulations to Dr. B. Linn Self. The BGCT’s Interim Ministry Network is blessed to call him one of our own!
