DICKSON, Tenn. (BP)--Dianne Burgess and Paul Fimano plan to be among the thousands from across the nation sharing their faith in a special evangelistic thrust June 18 in Nashville, Tenn.
Burgess, whose heart for sharing her faith helped heal the brokenness in her family, and Fimano, who led his daughter Faith to faith in Christ when she was 7, will reach out June 18 in much the same way they do every week as members of First Baptist Church in Dickson, a growing town of 12,000 about 40 miles west of Nashville.
“I don’t know if you’ve ever led someone to Christ, but it is the most awesome thing,” Burgess said between morning worship services April 3 during which Southern Baptist Convention President Bobby Welch was the featured speaker.
“I’ve done a lot of things in my life, been a lot places,” Burgess said, “but there’s nothing that compares to that experience of leading someone to Christ.”
Welch is speaking at churches in Tennessee and neighboring states to build momentum for the June 18 Crossover evangelistic thrust by volunteers from across the region and the nation preceding the SBC’s June 21-22 annual meeting in Nashville. Read More
