FORT WORTH, Texas (SWBTS) – Southwestern Seminary will complete the task it started about a year ago as the entire campus goes out on Sept. 7.
For the past year, the “Taking the Hill” campaign has challenged students, faculty and staff to take the Gospel to the nearly 6,700 households within a one-mile radius of the seminary campus. Since the beginning of this evangelism initiative, members of the seminary family have reached out to thousands of households, leading more than 100 people to a relationship with Christ and connecting them to local churches for discipleship.
In one final push, the seminary will attempt to complete the “Taking the Hill” campaign by urging all faculty members and students to take the Gospel into the community on Sept. 7. Faculty members and students will lay aside their academic work to share the Gospel side-by-side after a chapel service featuring guest preacher Ronnie Floyd, pastor of First Baptist Church, Springdale, Ark., and chairman of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Great Commission Resurgence Task Force.
Afternoon classes on Sept. 7 will participate together by leaving the classroom to share the Gospel in the community. Evangelism assignments will be available within the rotunda in front of Truett Auditorium.
