Dr. Lince received Christ on Aug.14, 1975 at the age of 25. Before receiving Christ, Dr. Lince served in Viet-Nam with the United States Marine Corps during 1968-69. He also attended the University of Michigan for two years, studying American History, and Physical Education. His life's goal before receiving Christ was to be a Physical Education teacher and coach at
High School. After receiving Christ, Dr. Lince left the University
of Michigan and enrolled at Midwestern Baptist College.
After two years at Midwestern, he was shocked to discover they rejected the King James Bible, and soon left. After that, Dr.
Lince sat under Pastor Dr. Herbert Noe and attended the Galilean Baptist Institute for one year. Dr. Noe later told him of Pensacola Bible Institute (PBI).
In 1980, Dr. Lince enrolled at PBI. In 1983, Dr. Lince received
his Bachelor of Divinity from PBI, and two years later, he earned his Master of Theology from PBI. In 1991, Dr. Lince earned his Ph.D from Temple Baptist Seminary. Dr. Lince had various experiences in the ministry, including three years at the Detroit Rescue Mission, two years at the Atmore Alabama State Prison and one year at Grace Baptist Church in Dyersburg, Tennessee. He also started Victory Baptist Church in Dyersburg Tennessee and ran an ACE day school. Dr. Lince was the Pastor of Bridgeport Baptist Church from 1986-2005. There is no doubt in the mind of the board of directors or the instructors here at TBDI that Dr. Lince was one of the greatest expository Bible Preachers this country has ever known. His unending service and dedication to the church and this Bible Institute will never be forgotten. Many of us associated with this school would not be the Christians we are today if it had not been for his leadership, encouragement and prayers. Dr. Lince passed away July 27, 2005.
