Meet Bishop Lawson Bryan: Get Your Spirit in Shape
While studying medicine at Tulane University, Bishop Bryan had a nagging question that kept him up all night. It’s a question you have probably considered as well: Will I be happy doing this for the rest of my life?
Growing up in a loving church environment where Ms. Forrester hugged him and every child attending Sunday School each week, Bryan knew his relationship with the church was where he had found purpose. So he went to seminary to find out if God was calling him to ministry.
Today, Bishop Bryan serves the South Georgia Conference. His training in science led him to write a book, shows in his love of researching for sermons, and gave him the inspiration to see the church as well-equipped medical laboratory.
