SBC 2011 B21 Panel Bio: Dr. Albert Mohler

It is a rare occasion that a biography consisting of academic degrees, along with previous and current job titles distract from one’s contribution to humanity, and in this case Evangelical Christianity in particular.  R. Albert Mohler is a leading intellectual in the Evangelical movement in the United States, with appearances on national programs such as CNN’s “Larry King Live,” NBC’s “Today Show,” and ABC’s “Good Morning America.” In addition, Mohler has written extensively for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and USA Today.


Dr. Mohler hosts a daily radio program called The Briefing which enables Christians to think biblically by providing daily worldview analysis about the leading news headlines and cultural conversations.  Another of the many helpful resources found at is Thinking in Public which is an interview forum for intelligent conversation about frontline theological and cultural issues.


While maintaining the national spotlight, Dr. Mohler is a committed churchman, having served on the staff of several Southern Baptist churches as an ordained minister, and he currently serves his local church as Sunday school teacher.  In addition, Dr. Mohler serves thousands of local churches in the Southern Baptist Convention as he is very active in denominational life.

Dr. Albert Mohler is a native of Lakeland, Florida, and serves as the President of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.  He a Bachelor of Arts degree from Samford University, and a Master of Divinity and the Doctor of Philosophy degrees from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (in systematic and historical theology).  Dr. Mohler is married to Mary, and they have two children Katie and Christopher.

Registration Details:

–       General Registration (April 26th – June 10th) – $15

Note: This $15 will include a lunch.  We understand that $15 may seem high, but it is an average price at convention centers.  We are not doing this to make money. In fact, we are attempting to raise money with sponsors to keep the cost at $15. Lunch in Phoenix downtown area will be costly, why not spend the time at a lunch listening to men like John Piper and David Platt talk about critical issues for the church. Thanks for considering this and we hope to see you there!!
