NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–“The Everyone Can Kingdom Challenge for Evangelism” national bus tour by Southern Baptist Convention President Bobby Welch resumed on Thursday, Sept. 23, heading into the western United States.
The schedule included stops at 10 a.m. at First Baptist Church in Cabot, Ark., and 6 p.m. at First Baptist Church in Lebanon, Mo. The tour had taken some days off, with the last stops at Glorieta Baptist Church in Oklahoma City Sept. 10 and the North American Mission Board in Alpharetta, Ga., Sept. 16.
On Friday, Sept. 24, the bus will stop at 10 a.m. at Tabernacle Baptist Church in Decatur, Ill., and at 6 p.m. at Calvary Baptist Church in Greenwood, Ind.
The tour began Aug. 29 at Welch’s home church in Florida, First Baptist Church in Daytona Beach, and will end with stops via air travel Oct. 5-7 in Canada, Alaska and Hawaii.
Welch conceived of a national bus tour rally as a means of generating a sense of urgency about evangelism among Southern Baptists. The bus tour is a kickoff for “The Everyone Can Kingdom Challenge for Evangelism” campaign which has the goal of “Witness, Win and Baptize … ONE MILLION!” in one year.
