I have just returned from Nashville where the interim progress report was presented to the Executive Committee of the Southern Baptist Convention. Before a capacity crowd, Dr. Ronnie Floyd, the Senior Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Springdale, AR and Chairman of the GCRTF presented the report. He was assisted at the podium by Dr. Ted Traylor, Dr. J.D. Greear (in a suit – yes, it does happen from time to time!), Dr. David Dockery, and Dr. Roger Spradlin.
It was a very challenging report.
If you have not watched Dr. Floyd give the report, you can view it here. I was able to spend some time with various leaders and we will post video interviews with responses from Dr. Greg Wills, Professor of Church History at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; Dr. Johnny Hunt, Senior Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Woodstock, GA and current SBC president; and Dr. David Dockery, President of Union University and member of the GCRTF.
You can read a copy of Dr. Floyd’s report here.
My colleagues Jim Smith and Tammi Reed Ledbetter have filed excellent stories here and here.
We will be adding our coverage to their excellent work this week as well.
