In 2020, Oklahoma Baptists annual meeting was conducted as an abbreviated, one-day session due to effects from the pandemic. In 2021, the two-day format resumes, with the Oklahoma Baptist Pastors Conference taking place Monday morning and afternoon and with the Annual Meeting taking place Monday evening and all-day Tuesday.

Among those scheduled to preach are Moore, First Pastor Charlie Blount; Todd Fisher, who serves as pastor of Shawnee, Immanuel, and was recently elected executive director-treasurer of Oklahoma Baptists, effective Jan. 2022; and Michael Butler, pastor of Chickasha, First, who is currently serving as Oklahoma Baptists president.

“The theme of the 2021 Annual Meeting is ‘One,’ as we focus on the unity we have in Jesus Christ,” Ligon said. As churches minister amid a culture that is increasingly divided, Ligon emphasized that the annual meeting will highlight unity, as Oklahoma Baptists advance the Gospel together.

The annual meeting will feature reports from various Oklahoma Baptists leaders, as well as from the four affiliate organizations—Oklahoma Baptist University, Baptist Village Communities, Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children and WatersEdge Ministry Services (formerly the Baptist Foundation of Oklahoma).
