Pastor Dykes Honored At Southern Baptist Convention

A big honor for Pastor David Dykes, the longtime pastor of Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler.

During the annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention, Dykes received the Southern Baptist Convention's highest award for cooperation.

Green Acres has been the top contributor to the cooperative program for several years, including 2007, when the Tyler congregation allocated one point four million dollars to the program.
