DALLAS — Dr. Robert Jeffress, the pastor of the 13,000-member First Baptist Church of Dallas, welcomes hero pilot Tammie Jo Shults for a special interview as part the “Explore First” event Oct. 21.
Captain Shults was piloting her commercial airliner on April 17, 2018, when one of the engines exploded, ripping a hole in the cabin and killing one of the passengers. Acclaimed for her “nerves of steel” (as the ABC’s “20/20” put it), calmness in communication and skill, captain Shults, one of the first female fighter pilots in the U.S. Navy, was able to land the plane safely and even hug the passengers as they left. Behind all of that was captain Shults’ deep Christian faith. “Captain Shults had an extraordinary faith that prepared her for an extraordinary time,” said Jeffress, who continued, “I’ll be interviewing her about that harrowing day, and how to develop the kind of faith that can handle instant and unexpected adversity.”
Dr. Jeffress will be preaching a provocative message entitled, “What Is the Most Important Verse in the Bible?” Billboards have sprung up around the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex advertising the message and ruling out verses that many might think are the most important. Verses like John 3:16, Genesis 1:1, and Matthew 7:1, as important as they are, pale in comparison to the actual verse, which will only be revealed in the Sunday message.
Following worship, there will be free lunch on the grounds for everyone in attendance.
First-time visitors will receive a completely free copy of Dr. Jeffress’ brand-new, bestselling book, Choosing the Extraordinary Life: God’s 7 Secrets for Success and Significance.
Date: Sunday, Oct. 21
Time: 9:15 AND 10:50 a.m. Services
Location: 1707 San Jacinto, Dallas, TX 75201
