Southern Baptist Convention UPDATES!

The Southern Baptist Convention will hold its annual conference in one week, June 13-14, 2006, in Greensboro, North Carolina.


At that time, SBC leaders will have the opportunity to bring to the floor and consider a resolution calling for member churches to develop exit strategies so parents can remove their children from public schools.



In the past, such resolutions have failed to make it out of committee, but things look different this time.  Pastor Darrell Orman of First Baptist Church in Stuart, Florida, is a member of the Resolutions Committee and has recently stated publicly that he thinks churches should actively support independent education. 


Last year, letters to the resolution committee members proved decisive,” [Bruce] Shortt said. “A version of our resolution made it out of committee last year only because people wrote letters to the committee. People sent emails, too... 


The authors don’t need to be members of SBC churches. Last year many outside the SBC wrote to tell the committee how important this issue is to all Christians. I know from conversations with last year’s committee members that the letters, articles, and other materials were read."


Contact the ten members of the Resolutions Committee and SBC President Dr. Bobby Welch – and let them know that you support the resolution!
