WAKE FOREST, N.C. (BP) — Jeff Struecker, one of the heroes of the 1993 conflict in Mogadishu that inspired the movie “Black Hawk Down,” graduated this spring from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS) with a doctor of philosophy in Christian leadership.
The former Ranger and retired chaplain for the United States Army is now lead pastor of Calvary Baptist Church, Columbus, Ga. During his military career, he was decorated for bravery above and beyond the call of duty for any Ranger, special operations warrior or soldier that resulted in saved lives.
SEBTS President Akin said of the Troy University graduate, “I was immediately impressed with his love for the Word and faithful expository preaching. Since then I have watched him continue to serve our country, our Lord and Christ’s Church with passion and excellence.”
