Inspiring Stories: Dr. Tara Dew and Andrea Lennon

This week's episode was recorded at the Annual Meeting of the Arkansas Baptist State Convention. Andrea Lennon sits down with Dr. Tara Dew, who spoke at this year's Ministers' Wives Conference. Dew recalls her own salvation experience at a Billy Graham crusade, and the two also discuss the significance of biblical hope. 

Dr. Tara Dew is the wife of Dr. Jamie Dew, president of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary & Leavell College (NOBTS). She is a mom to two sets of twins: Natalie & Nathan and Samuel & Samantha. After graduating from Meredith College with a Bachelor of Arts in Human Communication, Tara taught second grade for four years before becoming a stay-at-home mom. Since then, she has earned a Master of Arts in Teaching and Learning Elementary Education from Liberty University and a Doctorate in Education from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. She is currently homeschooling her four children and serving the students, staff, and faculty of NOBTS. As a pastor’s wife, Tara has been heavily involved in women’s and children’s ministries over the years. This led to her passion for training, equipping, and supporting ministers’ wives.
