Scope and Content Note
A collection of sermon outlines from James Sterling Dunn. An index is located at the beginning of the looseleaf documents.
James Sterling Dunn was born in Tennessee in 1874. His father died when he was eight; his mother lived in Nashville, Tennessee.
Upon completion of his public school education, he attended Winchester Normal for three years. He taught there for three years, and then he entered Nashville Bible School. He was baptized at the age of seventeen. Dunn preached the Gospel in many different places. He was instrumental in helping many brethren in building their own church buildings. He enjoyed mission work, and was particularly successful in difficult areas. Within the first sixteen years of his ministry he baptized over 2000 people into Christ.
He was married to Claudia Holland in 1900. Dunn moved to Texas where he served the Lord successfully in the Fort Worth area. He preached for some time for the Central church there, one of the most successful congregations in the state. Dunn passed away in 1922 and is buried within a family plot in the old Memorial Park Cemetery in Dallas, Texas.
