    Davis has served at First Baptist Church since 1998 and earned his bachelor of arts degree in mechanical engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
     
    While working as an engineer, he earned his master of divinity from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. In 1998, Davis graduated from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary with a doctorate in church history.
     
    Dagg, the namesake for the chair, lived from 1794 to 1884 and is remembered as one of the greatest Southern Baptist pastor-theologians of the 19th century. He overcame many obstacles during his lifetime through the power of Christ.
     
    John S. Hammett, SEBTS professor for almost 20 years and dean of theological studies, was installed into the new chair during the ceremony.
