On January 15 the First Baptist Church of Delaware presented a license to preach to Sam Chesser.  Sam is a second-year Master of Divinity student at the Methodist Theological School in Ohio.  In addition to a scholarship from the seminary, Sam has been awarded scholarships from the Marion Baptist Association and the Ohio Baptist Education Society.  He is an effective preacher who is often a guest in Marion Association churches and others in ABC/Ohio.  Sam is pictured here receiving the license from Rev. Tim Chesser, his father, who is pastor of the First Baptist Church.
