ORLANDO, Fla. – Messenger pre-registration for the 2020 Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) Annual Meeting, which will be June 9-10 in Orlando, Fla., will open up Saturday, Feb. 1.
“Last year, our theme for the annual meeting was simple: Gospel Above All,” said J.D. Greear, president of the SBC and pastor of The Summit Church in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. “This year’s theme is equally simple: Gospel Above All. Of course, this is a continuation of our theme from 2019. I’m not sure that an annual meeting theme has ever been repeated before, but my prayer is that repeating the theme will emphasize even more that the gospel really is to be above everything else.”
Topics to be discussed at the annual meeting will include diversity in the SBC, ‘Who’s Your One?’ campaign, Go2 initiative, Caring Well challenge and engaging the next generation in cooperative missions.
“I want to see 15,000 messengers in Orlando, a new wave of evangelism that turns the tide of declining baptism numbers, and a wave of sending in the SBC that leads us to those days of multiplication and growth that characterized the first centuries of the church, when a group of Jewish fishermen – without resources, conventions, money or public platforms – turned the world upside down,” said Greear.
