During the Southern Baptist Convention in June the messengers overwhelming approved the formation of a Great Commission Resurgence Task Force. The purpose and mandate for this group is to evaluate and study the effectiveness of the boards and agencies of our convention and recommend changes that will allow the convention to more effectively stay on the task of proclaiming the Gospel and furthering the Kingdom of Christ.
This task force consists of some of the foremost leaders in the Southern Baptist convention, including our Sr. Pastor, Al Gilbert. As they begin their work in the next few weeks I want to encourage you to join me in praying for them, their time together, and the work they are seeking to accomplish. I believe that it is absolutely both critical and necessary. The leadership of the GCRT has created a website where you can register your commitment to pray, as well as get updates on their work. They have an incredible task before them…let’s commit to pray and beg God to grant them wisdom in order that HE might be glorified and honored, and His kingdom furthered!
