The founder of a nonprofit ministry and pastor of The Church Under the Bridge in Waco will be guest speaker for the annual fall dinner hosted by Christian Service Center.
Jimmy Dorrell started his interdenominational church in 1992 as the result of a Bible study he held with five homeless men under an interstate bridge in Waco. Since then, he has founded Mission Waco/Mission World.
Dorrell’s topic for the Sept. 10 dinner will be “Building Bridges, Rebuilding Lives.” Individual tickets are $50. Deadline to purchase is Aug. 29. Table sponsors also are needed.
Dorrell will share the story of how businesses, universities, the city, and faith communities worked together to bring development and health to one of the poorer areas of Waco.
Introducing Dorrell will be Seaton Higginbotham, chairman of the board of the Abilene Chamber of Commerce. Higginbotham has led a drive within the chamber focusing on collaborative effort known as ThriveABI. Higginbotham will talk about ThriveABI in his introduction.
