‘Who’s Your One?’ tour stopping in Dallas Sept. 8-9
August 1st, 2019 / By: Texan Staff / comments
Dallas is one of the first stops on the nationwide “Who’s Your One?” tour that is designed to equip and encourage churches in their evangelistic efforts.
The Sept. 8-9 event, sponsored by the North American Mission Board, will take place at Prestonwood Baptist Church. The Christian group NewSong also will sing.
The 20-stop tour is designed to underscore the importance of the Who's Your One evangelism initiative, which encourages every Southern Baptist to intentionally build a relationship with one person and pray for them, share the Gospel with them and invite them to place their faith in Christ.
The Who’s Your One tour begins in Fayetteville, N.C., in August and concludes in Broken Arrow, Okla., in May.
The Dallas stop will open Sunday, Sept. 8, at 6 p.m. with a Who’s Your One Rally featuring keynote speaker Johnny Hunt, senior vice president of evangelism and leadership for the North American Mission Board.
The Dallas event will continue on Monday, Sept. 9, at 8 a.m. with a Who’s Your One Evangelism Workshop designed to inspire, equip and mobilize church members in evangelism. Scheduled workshop speakers include Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood; Ted Traylor, pastor of Olive Baptist Church in Pensacola, Fla.; Allan Taylor of LifeWay Christian Resources; and Catherine Renfro of the North American Mission Board.
The Southern Baptists of Texas Convention is promoting a five-step evangelism strategy for believers throughout the state as part of its Who’s Your One emphasis. The SBTC is encouraging church members to:
1. Identify: Pray first; ask God who your one ought to be.
2. Intercede: Pray: Don't just pray about them, but really pray for your ONE.
3. Invest: Create connection points for relationship building with your ONE.
4. Be Intentional: Look for opportunities to have spiritual conversations with your ONE.
5. Invite: Make an effort to share the gospel with your ONE.
“Imagine with me if every member of every Southern Baptists of Texas church would identify someone they know who does not know Jesus -- to intentionally begin to intercede for that person, to invest in relationship building with that person, and have intentional conversations and share the gospel with that person,” said Richard Taylor, the SBTC’s associate director of personal evangelism and fellowships, in a promotional video.
“Could you imagine if each one would actually reach one?” he asked. “We could begin to see a radical reduction in the lostness here in Texas and touch the world. My question is simple: Who’s your one?”
