Today the Emmaus family is mourning the loss of beloved faculty member, Dr. Dave Reid. He died yesterday, January 31, as the result of a skiing accident in Utah.
Dave, husband of Margie (Smart) Reid, taught at Emmaus from 1975-2003. “Dr. Grace,” as he was lovingly named by those who studied with him, introduced the Old Testament to generations of Emmaus students. His Old Testament Walk-Thru remains imprinted on the memories of the students he taught. Dave loved and valued the Scriptures, and he trained his students to shun “bad hermeneutics” and rightly divide the Word of Truth. His colleagues remember with joy his sense of humor, boundless energy, and sincere love for the Lord. In addition to his ministry at Emmaus, Dave produced Devotions for Growing Christians in radio and print, reaching thousands with practical lessons from the Scriptures.
We rejoice in knowing that Dave is now in the presence of the Savior he loved and served with his life. Please remember Dave’s wife, Margie, his children, and grandchildren in prayer.
Remember those who led you, who spoke the Word of God to you; and considering the result of their conduct, imitate their faith. Hebrews 13:7
"Don't Drop the Baton"
The last message given by Dr. Dave at Emmaus Bible College (10/14/11). An exhortation to remember the important responsibility of the faithful in each generation to pass on the baton of the truth of God's Word to the faithful in the next generation–and not add to it, subtract from it, change it, or distort it!
