H.K.W.H.T.A. – Steve Gifford, Recently retired Texas Conference President

“If you baptized fewer than six people last year, you need to meet with me and our conference evangelism coordinator before you go home. We want to hear about your soul winning plan for this coming year. If you need help putting one together, we can help you.”

— Steve Gifford, at the January 1995 Texas Conf Pastors’ meeting. He had been elected Texas Conference President the year before. During his leadership (1994-2004) more than 21,000 people joined the Texas Conference through Baptism or Profession of Faith, making it the fastest growing large conference in the North American Division. The membership grew from under 25,000 to over 37,000. Having clear, simple, written soul winning plans by each pastor (and church, school & institution) can make a tremendous difference.
