The Texas Baptists Center for Church Health this month welcomed Dr. Timothy Fuller as the new Associate Director of Evangelism, African American Specialist. Fuller transitioned to the role from his prior position as Ministry Specialist with Texas Baptists African American Ministries. He assumed the new position on Aug. 1.
“I am excited to work in Evangelism. My goal is to educate, equip and empower churches to declare, demonstrate and defend the gospel of Jesus Christ,” said Fuller. “We as disciples are the ‘salt of the earth and light of the world;’ in order for the church to make an impact, we must first make contact.”
Fuller brings more than 15 years of leadership and education experience to this new position.
Prior to his time with Texas Baptists, Fuller served as an adjunct professor at Southern Bible Institute and College in Dallas and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (SWBTS). He has conducted numerous workshops and seminars locally, nationally and internationally in hermeneutics, expository teaching and preaching, and apologetics.
In addition to teaching Bible classes in the Philippines, Dominican Republic and India, Fuller has also served as interim pastor at St. John Missionary Baptist Church in Euless, Texas, and in other capacities on several Texas Baptists church staffs.
Fuller earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from the University of Texas at Arlington and a Master of Divinity from SWBTS. In the spring of 2018, he earned a Ph.D. in Homiletics from SWBTS and was the first African American to graduate from the School of Preaching.
"We are thrilled to now have Tim serving on the Evangelism Team in the Center for Church Health,” said Leighton Flowers, director of Evangelism for Texas Baptists. “He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this role, and I cannot wait to see how God uses him to reach more people with the gospel of Jesus Christ here in Texas and around the world.”
The Evangelism Department of Texas Baptists exists to challenge, equip and train Texas Baptists, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to passionately fulfill God’s call to reach all people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Information on evangelism resources, strategies, camps and more is available online at txb.org/evangelism, and the next Statewide Evangelism Conference is scheduled for January 21-22, 2024 at Trinity Baptist Church in San Antonio, Texas.
