Nationwide ‘Who’s Your One?’ tour to kick off in NC

July 9, 2019

North Carolina will be the first stop on a nationwide “Who’s Your One?” tour sponsored by the North American Mission Board (NAMB) designed to equip and encourage churches in their evangelistic efforts.

Temple Baptist Church in Fayetteville, N.C., will host the first event on Sunday and Monday, Aug. 11-12, which will feature Johnny Hunt, NAMB’s senior vice president of evangelism and leadership, as the keynote speaker.

The event will feature a rally at 6 p.m. Sunday followed by an evangelism workshop beginning at 8 a.m. Monday. Sunday’s rally is free and open to the public. Monday’s workshop is also free but registration is required.

The rally is designed to inspire and challenge individuals from God’s Word in the area of personal evangelism, while the workshop will include practical training designed to instruct, inspire, equip and mobilize the local church to share the gospel.

Training sessions will cover topics such as cultivating your heart for evangelism, practical ways to start gospel conversations, creating a culture of evangelism in your church and utilizing small groups for evangelism.

“I wish every pastor, every staff person and their spouses and your key lay leaders would join us….” — Johnny Hunt

During the NAMB report at the 2019 Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) annual meeting in Birmingham, Ala., Hunt said he wishes “every pastor, every staff person and their spouses and your key lay leaders would join us” during the “Who’s Your One?” tour.

Hunt will speak during the Sunday evening rally and also participate in the workshop training on Monday. Ministry leaders scheduled to appear with Hunt for the training workshop in Fayetteville include Jimmy Scroggins, pastor of Family Church in West Palm Beach, Fla.; Catherine Renfro, marketing consultant with NAMB; Allan Taylor, director of Sunday School and church education ministries at LifeWay Christian Resources; and Tim Dowdy, senior pastor of Eagle’s Landing First Baptist Church in McDonough, Ga. Singer and songwriter Charles Billingsley is scheduled to lead worship.

The “Who’s Your One?” tour will include stops in at least 20 cities from August 2019 until May 2020. The tour is designed to underscore the importance of the “Who’s Your One?” evangelism initiative that 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 tour also includes a second scheduled stop in North Carolina on March 8-9, 2020, at First Baptist Church of Indian Trail near Charlotte.
