Securing the Homefront (Rev. Dr. Chauncey Harrison)
Sermon series on the Book of Galatians
What does it mean to secure the homefront for us as followers of Jesus? Our world is filled with noise, confusion, and misinformation that can distract us from God's call for us. We must be secure in who we are in Christ as individuals and a community in order to resist the temptations and attacks on our faith. In this series we journey through Paul's teachings in Galatians chapter by chapter to gain basic training for living faithful lives as believers. These are powerful instructions for loving God and others the way Jesus Christ has taught us.
Rev. Dr. Chauncey Pierre Harrison, a native of Chicago, Illinois, accepted his calling into the Gospel Ministry at age 16 and was later licensed and ordained as a Baptist Minister. His gifts as a communicator and leader have afforded him the opportunity to speak at a plethora of faith-based, educational, governmental, social justice, philanthropic, and community organizations. Raised in the Englewood community, notorious for poverty, unemployment, crime, gun violence, gangs, and drug infestation in the city of Chicago, Harrison graduated from John Hope College Preparatory High School in the top 5% of his class despite the odds. Since then, Dr. Harrison received his Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Religious Studies from The University of Chicago, a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree from Yale University, and his Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) degree from Duke University. In July 2018, he was installed as the 12th Senior Pastor in the 140-year history of the Zion Baptist Church (Philadelphia, PA). Captain (CPT) Harrison serves as a Battalion Chaplain in the United States Army, stationed at the 424th Multifunctional Medical Battalion (Newtown Square, PA). Although he considers being a Pastor his highest calling, he aspires to become an itinerant preacher, motivational speaker, lecturer, author, activist, and philanthropist.
