Fidelity: The Demand of Jesus for a Covenant with God

Dr. Caleb Oladipo is Professor at Campbell University Divinity School, Buies Creek, NC, who shares and reflects on our Covenant promise “I will be sensitive to God’s message as it comes to me from persons. . .”

As a Christian from the Global South, Caleb weaves together scripture and his own moving personal life story to illustrate how God places others in our lives to point us to a deeper covenantal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

Caleb serves as the Snellings Chair of Christian Evangelism and Missions and Director of the Braswell World Religions and Global Culture Center at Campbell Divinity School.

Caleb’s works explore the natural depth and character of Christianity in Africa and also addresses topics of race and justice from an African Christian perspective. In addition to two books, he has published numerous articles and presented lectures around the world on African Christianity and theology.

Moving to the U.S. in 1980, he began his college education at Wayland Baptist University in Plainview, Texas, earning his BA in Theology. He went on to earn the Master of Divinity at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC and the Master of Sacred Theology at Yale University Divinity School.
