Great Commission Resurgence Resources

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 my own endorsement of any particular persuasion.  I am favorable to the GCR’s work and am trying to be diligent in digesting its implications and thinking (even discussing) through them. If you know of significant resources, please leave them in the comments or e-mail me.  I’m happy to take a look.

Great Commission Resurgence Reports

Last June, the Southern Baptist Convention authorized the President of the Convention to appoint a task force that would essentially re-imagine how we operate and function.  Thus was born the Great Commission Task Force. Last week, the Task Force’s first report was given.  Kelly and I watched it together just after it was released.  I have yet to form significant opinions (significant as an ordinary pastor can have) worth public comment about it, and will be giving more time to reading the report and talking to some involved.  I am excited for possible changes that will enhance our focus as a Convention, and concerned about how the implications of the Task Force will be applied.  The Task force will present its final report in a few months and it will be considered at the June annual meeting in Orlando. Below is the video report of the Task force. GCR Progress Report from GCR on Vimeo. Here is the written report. Albert Mohler posted some thoughts on it today. Any thoughts from any of you as of...
