Doing Whatever It Takes to Reach One More!

From the DOM

The national annual Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) meets in Nashville June 15th-`16th, with various specialized ministry meetings occurring June 13th-14th.   Several churches in the Winston Baptist Association plan to send representatives to the meeting which is expected to include 14,000 attendants.  The annual business of the convention includes: commissioning new missionaries to serve here in the US and around the world; electing five officers to leadership positions; electing trustees to serve each of the eleven SBC ministry entities; electing the Convention’s two standing committees—the Executive Committee and the Committee on Order of Business —and its Committee on Nominations; adopting the SBC Cooperative Program Allocation Budget, the funding mechanism through which churches channel their support for the SBC operating budget and the nine SBC ministry entities that are not self-supporting; and listening to reports and presentations from each SBC ministry entity and the Woman’s Missionary Union, a missions auxiliary to the SBC.  While sometimes such a business meeting may seem cumbersome, each church and participant has the ultimate goal of efficiently providing resources for missionaries and pastors to win souls for Christ.
