Great Commission Resurgence Resources

I am preparing my mind and hopefully my heart as well for what God is doing in the Southern Baptist Convention through the Great Commission Resurgence.  I am hopeful, but still wanting to know more.  So, this post will be a parking lot for compiling what I think are significant resources across the web that address this subject.  I’m interested in reading all the angles and sides on this issue, so my linking here does not mean...

GCR Thoughts and Prayers

Much has been said and written about the recent Great Commission Resurgence in the Southern Baptist Convention. Some of the key leaders of our denomination have prayed for, planned for, spoken to, written about, advocated, and lobbied for this present movement. I respect and trust many of the men who have so far provided GCR leadership. I have no doubt in my mind that without some significant changes in approaches and emphasis, the...

Praying for a Great Commission Resurgence

Dr. Ronnie Floyd, Chairman of GCR Task Force from Ronnie Floyd on Vimeo. This past June, the Southern Baptist Convention launched what some have touted to be one of the most historic of movements: the Great Commission Resurgence. Time will tell what the new GCR Task Force will recommend. As they do their work, the GCR team has put together a web-site calling people to pray for a/the Great Commission Resurgence. According to the site:...

Day 3 in Louisville

What an enjoyable day it has been today at the SBC – primarily a day to celebrate the Lord’s goodness in the 150th anniversary of The Southern Baptist Convention. Our day began with the consideration of resolutions.  This is generally a very lively event as it is an opportunity for people with strong convictions to attempt to have the convention publicly agree with those convictions. The most notable resolutions of the day...

Day 2 in Louisville

Today was one of the best days at the Southern Baptist Convention I’ve had in a long time.  There was plenty to get the blood pumping – both good and bad. Dr. Danny Akin began the day with a great review of 3 John and an exhortation to those at the Founders’ Breakfast.  Here’s his words of caution: 1 Don’t make Calvinism such a priority that you cannot work with other confessional Christians for the Great...

Should We Remain in the SBC?

Here’s more on the current trends and debates in the SBC in advance of this week’s annual meeting. Perhaps this is a generationally driven debate. Younger generations (I still wistfully place myself on the senior end of this group) are questioning the viability, reasonability, and rationale of being a part of a denomination that appears more and more irrelevant to the daily life of the local church. I don’t think...

SBC: Day 1

Yesterday was a day of travel-not much interesting to report. Justin and I flew in to Louisville on different flights. It was fun introducing him to the Cracker Barrel. His life will never be the same. We picked up Pastor Stephen Jones (his flight came in after ours). Fun stuff, huh. Travel. You can visit the convention web-site for the aftermath from the Southern Baptist Convention Pastor’s Conference. However, Justin and I did...
