(Protestia) Gavin Ortland is both doing the world a favor and cursing it, announcing on X that he’s leaving the pastorate to become a full-time theology YouTuber.
Ortland, the lead pastor of First Baptist Church of Ojai, California, is the perfect mix of David French, TGC ethos, and Christianity Today talking points. He revealed that he’s merging his Truth Unites ministry, which has 41,000 subscribers and exists to “promote gospel assurance through theological depth,” with his father’s Renewal Ministries.
He’s also moving to Nashville, where he will become the “Theologian in Residence” at Immanuel Nashville, the prominent Acts 29 church led by TJ Tims, Sam Alberry, and Barnabas Piper. Here, he’ll be joined by another ‘Leader in Residence’ who calls Immanuel home: former ERLC President and current Christianity Today Editor-in-Chief Russell Moore.
