1990 NACC President Richard D. Hogan Dies

by | 28 September, 2022

Dr. Richard D. Hogan, 88, died Tuesday morning, Sept. 27, in Bella Vista, Ark. He was a longtime minister with First Christian Church in Council Bluffs, Iowa, and then with NewLife Christian Church in Bella Vista, Ark., and then First Christian Church in Gentry, Ark. He served as president of the 1990 North American Christian Convention in Kansas City, Mo., and was a member of the Publishing Committee at Standard Publishing from about 1984 to 2005. (Standard Publishing formerly was the parent company of Christian Standard.)  

The 1990 NACC theme was “Amazing Love . . . Good News for the ’90s.”  

“As we project ourselves to the year 2000,” he wrote in Christian Standard in March of that year, “we need a more concerted effort than ever before to proclaim and live out God’s good news.” 

That year, Dr. Hogan’s NACC sermon was “Amazing Love Redeems (The Cost of Love)” from 1 John 4:7:10. 

Upon his retirement from the Publishing Committee, former Christian Standard editor Mark A. Taylor wrote, “He has been a friend, prayer partner, wise counselor, and faithful servant.”  

In a 2008 Christian Standard article, Fred Hansen, who now serves as Robert Lowery chair of New Testament/associate professor of biblical studies for TCM, described Hogan as “a model of scholarship and discipleship to many young people in our church.”
