DALLAS – Phil Lineberger, pastor of Williams Trace Baptist Church in Sugar Land, will preach the Baptist General Convention of Texas Annual Meeting sermon this fall.
The former BGCT president will take on the duties after Randall O’Brien, who was scheduled to preach the sermon during the BGCT Annual Meeting in November, was named president of Carson-Newman College in Jefferson City, Tenn.
“Having had the privilege of hearing Phil Lineberger preach several summers at Paisano Baptist Encampment, I’m delighted that he will give the 2008 convention sermon in Fort Worth,” said Kathy Hillman, chairwoman of the BGCT Committee on Convention Business. “Phil’s preaching combines his passion for the gospel and a practical approach to living with a dash of good humor.”
The BGCT Annual Meeting is scheduled for Nov. 10-11 in Fort Worth.
