Last Tuesday morning Dr. George Zemek walked into a room full of pastors in training (streamed in on account of the recent pandemic!). Some of the men preached that day as part of their coursework, while others waited their turn. They were preaching Old Testament texts, which in the previous semester Dr. Zemek had walked them through diagramming and outlining the Hebrew as preparation for preaching. Now he was helping them hone their skill in the proclamation of the Word of God.
     That morning in class was the continuation of what Dr. Zemek has been doing for some five decades—pouring into men for a lifetime of faithful gospel ministry. Dr. Zemek is an elder at Grace Immanuel Bible Church, Jupiter, FL, where he serves as the Academic Dean of The Expositors Seminary. He has been involved in church leadership since 1967. In 1975 he began his academic teaching career in the Greek department at Grace College.
During that period he also served as a part-time instructor in the Homiletics department of the seminary. From 1977 to 1988, Dr. Zemek was a full-time professor of biblical languages, theology, and apologetics, serving also as Grace Seminary’s Director of Doctoral Studies from 1985–1988. Beginning in 1988, he taught the biblical languages, apologetic methodology, and theology for six years at The Master’s Seminary in Sun Valley, CA. In 1994, Dr. Zemek became the founding Pastor-Teacher and professor, respectively, of Grace Bible Church and The Ministry Training Center in Brandon, FL. From 2000 until 2009 he served as Dean of the Ministry Training Center and Pastor to Seniors and Shut-ins at The Bible Church of Little Rock. In 2007 he also took on an interim role as the Academic Dean of The Expositors Seminary. Then in 2009 he accepted this deanship as a full time position, moving to Jupiter, FL with Judy, his wife of fifty-three years.

This past fall Grace Immanuel Bible Church celebrated Dr. Zemek's fifty years of faithfulness. See a tribute to Dr. Zemek and interview with Jerry Wragg here. In the interview you'll hear Dr. Zemek's encouraging testimony to the faithfulness of God to save him and make him useful to the church, whose Head is Christ.

On Dr. Zemek's calendar for this coming Tuesday is next week's class, when he intends to walk into the classroom, take his seat, and, in his continued faithfulness, open his Bible.
