Speakers are . . .
Bobby Welch perhaps is best known as the co-founder/originator of FAITH Evangelism through the Sunday School strategy which is now in four languages in 14 countries with more than 500,000 trained in FAITH evangelism.
Welch was elected president of the SBC in 2004 and served two terms. As convention president, Welch focused on soul-winning. His slogan during the presidency was “Everyone Can … and I’m It.”
Welch has held numerous positions in Baptist life.
In addition to being a past SBC president and vice president, Welch is a former president of the Florida Baptist Convention. He has been a trustee of LifeWay Christian Resources and was on the search committee that called former LifeWay president James Draper. As a pastor in Florida he also served on the search committee that called John Sullivan, current executive director of the Florida Baptist Convention.
Welch also has served on the SBC Committee on Resolutions and Committee on Nominations.
Welch is a frequent speaker at state conventions, pastors conferences, evangelism conferences and other events. He has spoken in every state at least once and overseas as well.
Welch has also written several books, including his latest You, The Warrior Leader, published by Broadman Holman.
He is a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War, having received the Purple Heart, the Bronze Star with “V’ Device for bravery and other honors.
Welch and his wife have two married children, Matthew and Haylee, and four grandchildren.
Rudy Kalis had humble beginnings, and he sailed into New York harbor with his mother, father, and sister as immigrants from Germany when he was only 5 years old--unable to speak a word of English. With all of their earthly possessions crammed into one small wooden trunk, they were each issued 14 dollars and a train ticket that eventually led to Milwaukee, Wisconsin where he lived for the next 20 years.
In 1970, after serving his country with four years in the United State Air Force, he returned to Milwaukee and attended the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, earning a degree in mass communications.
In 1973 he was hired as a news and sports reporter at WFRV-TV in Green Bay, but in 1974 he was offered a job as a sports reporter and anchor at WSMV-TV in Nashville, Tennessee where he has worked ever since--a rarity in the highly competitive television broadcasting industry.
The key to his longevity and success lies in the fact that he has always been able to relate the drive to succeed in sports to the same passion to succeed in life. In order to appreciate that even more, he’s made a point of getting involved personally from skydiving, to driving race cars, to flying in an F-16 fighter jet. He is truly a man with passion for life, for work and for family.
Rudy and his wife Leigh have two adult daughters, Leah and Jennifer. When he’s not working, Rudy enjoys playing basketball, golf, and working outdoors. He is on the board of directors of the Jason Foundation to help prevent youth suicide, also the organization Character Counts, and he is a frequent speaker for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
