GAINESVILLE - Three years ago, Scott Dixon moved his family to Gainesville from Alpharetta, where he worked as a marketing director. But he wasn't doing what he loved: working in the food service business.
When the Rev. Bucky Kennedy started in the Baptist ministry, he never expected to become president of the Georgia Baptist Convention.
But on Nov. 13, the former pastor of Riverbend Baptist Church in Gainesville and current pastor of First Baptist Church of Vidalia was elected as the GBC president during its 186th annual meeting in Augusta.
