Bakerview MB Church’s annual Bible conference honoured a highly regarded MB teacher and minister who died last April.
David Ewert became part of the Abbotsford, B.C., congregation on his retirement in 1992 and continued to teach in the church setting almost until his death. It is estimated he taught and preached for more than 65 years. Ewert left a significant legacy, both among his students and through his books, in Canada and beyond.
“There are countless men and women who understand Scripture more clearly because of David’s faithful teaching ministry,” said Bakerview pastor Michael Dick, at the time of Ewert’s funeral. “He was a lifelong learner.”
Every January for the past 20 years, Bakerview has offered a Bible conference. It was founded by David Ewert and he would enrich attendees each year by his teaching. This year, Bakerview renamed it the David Ewert Memorial Bible Conference.
Doreen Ewert gave the opening lecture in honour of her father. Columbia Bible College professor Michael Szuk and president emeritus Walter Unger shared leadership of the study of Revelation.
