Rev George Washington Truett
Birth: May 6, 1867
Hayesville
Clay County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Jul. 7, 1944
Dallas
Dallas County
Texas, USA

A native North Carolinian, George Truett was educated and 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 re-mained 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.
