 J. R. Faulkner retired in 1990, then served as Interim Pastor of Highland Park Baptist Church until 1991.

Dr. Faulkner was first a teacher at T.T.U., then Vice President for 22 years; and in 1974 he became President. Dr. Lee Roberson wrote about Dr. Faulkner – “In the many years of my work, I have found no one to equal Dr. Faulkner in fruitfulness, purity of life, and dedication to the cause of Christ. As a multi-talented man, he performed every task with precision, enthusiasm, zeal, and spiritual power. As a song leader, artist, administrator, preacher or soul winner, he worked with an unquestioned whole-heartedness. We continue to walk together in the work of our Saviour!!”

 Dr. Faulkner served as pastor of South Rossville Baptist Church, Rossville, Georgia, from 1945 – 1949, when he accepted the Associate Pastor position at Highland Park Baptist Church, Chattanooga, Tennessee.

 Dr. Faulkner said, “I have chosen to live within walking distance of Highland Park Baptist Church in case my car does not start on Sunday morning I can still walk to church and be on time for my duties.”

He was faithful first to Christ, to his wife and family and to Dr. Lee Roberson.   If you were to place a picture by the word faithful in the dictionary–that picture should be of J. R. Faulkner. 




Author: Editor

An ordained Baptist minister. Worked for 10 years with a Christian publishing ministry where I was the circulation manager for a growing publication, The Sword of the Lord. I also did most of direct mail fundraising and promotion. I have pastored churches in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama & Arkansas. I served for some four years as Vice President of The Spoken Word of God ministry, Orlando, FL. This ministry was active in church planting in India and broadcasting the Scriptures via Trans World Radio and other radio outlets. My associate in this ministry later invited me to join him and his dad in starting a business working with churches providing multimedia equipment. I have done this work for the last 16 years. This blog, hopefully, will scratch an itch I have for communicating the Word of God to a broader audience via the Internet. I would be honored to hear from you via email.
