Who is B. G. Dyess?

Bernice G. Dyess, known as B. G. Dyess, was for seventy-three years a Southern Baptist minister from Alexandria, Louisiana, who served as a conservative Democratic member of the Louisiana State Senate from 1996 to 2000, in which capacity he was known for his opposition to gambling.

From 1964 to 1988, Dyess was the Rapides Parish Registrar of Voters, a position to which he was appointed by the parish police jury. The registrar's position brought Dyess ex officio membership on the Louisiana State Board of Election Supervisors. He was succeeded as registrar by Joanell Luke Wilson.

Is prayer profitable? . . . We believe it is, or else we wouldn't be here today. My friends, prayer is profitable. -- B.G. Dyess
