Longtime pastor, missionary and Bible teacher Elbert White is the director of church relations for Dispensational Publishing House, Inc.
In this position, White is tasked with building a network of dispensationally minded churches across the United States and Canada. As most dispensationalists know, finding a local church with dispensational theology can be a daunting task. It is our prayer that we can create a database of churches—making the search easier for those looking for such a church.
In addition to this task, the director of church relations will work with dispensational pastors who are interested in serving in ministry, networking them with churches who are searching for qualified pastors. White will also be developing material for pastoral search teams, giving them guidance for the process of interviewing candidates.
White is a graduate of Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, Mo., and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. He has served as the pastor of local churches in Missouri, Texas and New Mexico. He and Patty, his wife of more than 54 years, also served as missionaries to Zimbabwe, Southeast Asia and Panama. After retirement, White served for more than five years as director of adult education at First Baptist Church of Katy, Texas, where he prepared curriculum, guided teachers and taught a Bible study class.
Elbert is the father of DPH founder and chief executive officer, Dr. Randy White.
