An interview with McCain's pastor
The presumptive Republican nominee for president, Arizona senator John McCain, has for 15 years attended North Phoenix Baptist Church, which is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. The pastor of the church for that same period has been Dan Yeary. A graduate of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Yeary, 69, has spent most of his ministry in large, urban congregations. His ministry includes work in television and radio as well as leading his 7,000-member church.
