“Several churches have already left the denomination over its social justice movement but many were holding out hope for one more year to see if any change could be made. It should be expected that SBC churches will leave in en masse.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Southern Baptist Convention’s annual meeting scheduled for June 2020 in Orlando has been canceled….
It should be noted that despite the civil government’s outlook that the United States should be fully operational by Easter, the meeting hasn’t been rescheduled or postponed, but completely canceled, leaving all of the current entity heads and officers in place for at least one more year.
According to a report by current Southern Baptist president, JD Greear — who is nearing the end of his second and last constitutionally allowed term in June — all of the Southern Baptist entity heads and officers of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Executive Committee “unanimously voted” to hold their positions for another year — calling it “putting the gospel above all.”
