Fort Worth Star-Telegram
PORT WORTH, Texas (AP) —
Professor Jim Spivey walked into
his church history class at
Southwest Baptist Theological
Seminary last week — wearing an
, “I have been called to another
unique ministerial opportunity.”
Spivey told the stunned students.
Spivey, a Vietnam veteran and
major in the Army Reserve, was
called to active duty at Fort Bliss in
El Paso. He said lie expects to he
asked to work as a chaplain with
troops in Saudi Arabia.
His students, after hearing the
news, gathered in a circle and
prayed for Spivey and he prayed
“It was my last class for them,
and they wanted to pray,” he said.
“There is an unflagging commit-
ment to pray for me and the
students who have, been called to
active duty. It really does make you
realize that we are brothers and sis-
ters in Christ ”
Spivey, who holds a doctorate in
philosophy from Oxford University
in England, is the first /acuity
member at the seminary to be cal-
led to active duty. But he said two
students have been called up to
serve during the Persian Gulf crisis.
The students called up earlier,
Kevin Forrester of DeRidder, La.,
and Craig Hutson of Weatherford,
are in the Air Force Reserve.
Spivey said his wife, Beverly,
and daughter, Jennifer, 8, reacted in
“disbelief” to the call-up, but they
knew it was a possibility.
“They are cautious; worried.
They trust the Lord to take care of
me," he said.
Spivey said he’s approaching the
new assignment as a God-given
opportunity, to help people in
“That’s really what it is,” he
said. “You can’t be anxious about
that It’s such an opportunity’ to
reach people who never darken the
door of a church.”
Spivey has been in the Army
Reserve for 18 years. 14 years as an
artillery officer and the last four
years as a chaplain. He is assigned
to the 28th Aviation Group Army
Reserve unit based in Arlington,
but has been transferred to another
reserve unit at Fort Bliss, which has
been called to active duty and ex-
pects to serve in Saudi Arabia.
“I was stationed in Saudi in
1976-77, so I know something of
the Persian Gulf area,” he said.
Being a Christian chaplain in a
Muslim country is a touchy situa-
It’s possible, he said, that he will
be asked not to wear a cross on his
collar and on his .Army cap as he
does in the United States.
His wrife is keeping calm and
making sure their daughter knows
what is happening, bufdoesn’t be-
come too frightened.
“We’re just trusting God to take
care of him,” Beverly Spivey said.
“If w’e didn’t have that, it would be
