"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 Rev. George Truett


[b]Rev. George Truett[/b]
Baptist pastor. George W. Truett was born on May 6, 1867, at Hayesville, Clay County, North Carolina. He was converted to Christ in the Hayesville Baptist Church at the age of 19. When he surrendered his heart to Christ for salvation, he also surrendered his will to God for service. The desire of his life seemed to be,
"Thy will be done."

In 1889 he moved with his parents to Grayson County, Texas, where he was ordained one year later by the Whiteright Baptist Church. In 1897 he was graduated from Baylor University and in September of that year was called to the pastor- ate of the First Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas, and remained there for 47 years.

Under his leadership, the First Baptist Church grew into the largest church in the world at the time. Dr. Truett served as president of the Southern Baptist Convention from 1927 to 1929, and as president of the Baptist World Alliance from 1934 to 1939. He went to be with the Lord on July 7, 1944, at Dallas, Texas.
