NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–“The Everyone Can Kingdom Challenge for Evangelism” national bus tour by Southern Baptist Convention President Bobby Welch will visit churches in two Great Plains states — Nebraska and Kansas — on Wednesday, Sept. 29.

The day’s schedule will include a 10 a.m. rally in Bellevue, Neb., at West Bellevue Baptist Church and a 6 p.m. rally in Kansas City, Kan., at Haven Baptist Church. While in the Kansas City area, the bus also will make a 3:30 p.m. stop at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

On Thursday, in New Mexico and Colorado, the day’s stops will include rallies at 10 a.m. at First Baptist Church in Las Vegas, N.M., and at 6 p.m. at First Baptist Church in Aurora, Colo. Tuesday’s stops were at First Southern Baptist Church in Sioux Falls, S.D., and Southern Hills Baptist Church in Sioux City, Iowa.

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.
