Ernest Reisinger was the senior pastor of North Pompano Baptist Church, a small SBC church in North Pompano Beach, Florida. He republished an old Baptist systematic theology and send a copy to every graduating Southern Baptist seminary student, James P. Boice's Systematic Theology. By God’s providence, Reisinger was the right man in the right place at the right time. He had come to the ordained ministry late in life. For over twenty years, he had owned and operated a successful contracting business in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. There, he had also been a founding elder of Grace Baptist Church, which by the 1960s had become the flagship reformed Baptist church in America.
