Dr. Wayne Briant, pastor of Southside Baptist Church in Sarasota, Fla., and BCF Trustee Chair to speak in chapel March 11-13, at 10:00 a.m. CST.

Wayne Briant, pastor of Southside Baptist Church in Sarasota, Fla., will be the guest speaker in the R. G. Lee Chapel March 11-13, at The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville. Services will be held each day beginning at 10 a.m. CST.

Known for his evangelical preaching and heart for the lost, it is no surprise that Southside Baptist Church where Briant is pastor has been recognized three times by The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary as being in the top one-half of one percent of churches in the Southern Baptist Convention in evangelistic effectiveness. Reaching the lost and hurting throughout the community has been a focal point and mandate for the church under Briant's leadership. During Briant's 22 years of service, more than 1,350 people have been baptized into the membership of Southside.

In addition to Southside, Briant has served churches in Florida, the Pacific Northwest, and Oklahoma. He has held senior leadership positions within the Southern Baptist Convention, Florida Baptist Convention, and currently serves as the Chair of the Board of Trustees for The Baptist College of Florida.

Briant and his wife Ruthi have four adult children and two grandchildren. For more information on the Spring 2013 chapel speakers or schedule, call 800-328-2660 ext. 446 or visit baptistcollege.edu.
