Saturday, June 18, hundreds of volunteers from Hispanic churches across the country will join in the Crossover Nashville evangelistic thrust.

That evening, Hispanic fellowship participants will begin gathering at six at Tulip Grove Baptist Church, 563 Shute Lane in Old Hickory, northeast of Nashville, for registration, fellowship, music, worship and praise, and time for participants to view exhibits from different ministries and sponsors.
