The Temple Chamber of Commerce is honored to once again invite the business community to Salute to Business (STB), an annual banquet used to reflect on the past year, pass on leadership positions, and obtain inspiration for the new year.
STB will be held at the Mayborn Convention Center on Tuesday, January 29, 2019, starting at 5:45 p.m. Speaking this year is Dr. Tony Evans the Senior Pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship. He will be giving a motivational and inspirational message about community engagement for the Temple community.
As the first African-American to graduate from Dallas Theological Seminary with a doctoral degree, Dr. Tony Evans has authored over 100 pieces of literature and can be heard on his daily radio broadcast, The Alternative with Dr. Tony Evans. He is also the former chaplain of the Dallas Cowboys and current chaplain for the NBA Dallas Mavericks. Married to Lois, his wife and ministry partner for over 40 years, they have four children, twelve grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.
“Salute to Business is a signature event for the Temple Chamber of Commerce. This is the opportunity for the business and community leadership to join together and celebrate the excitement of the transformation that is happening in the greater Temple community … in all directions,” said Rod Henry, President of the Temple Chamber of Commerce.

I enjoy uniting with friends, community leaders, and partnerships to celebrate our many success stories and accomplishments that occurred over the past year. Dr. Evan’s motivational message is certain to give us some good inspirational ideas to apply to our businesses.”
