Baptist21 will once again host a panel luncheon during the Tuesday lunch break of the Southern Baptist Convention. We are excited to provide this panel as a time to hear from key voices in the SBC. We are confident this event will have a lineup that is compelling to ministers, especially young ministers, in helping us navigate through discussions of mission and ministry. The panel will also be vital to the Great Commission Resurgence conversation.
What: “b21 Panel” – This will be a forum discussing the present and future of the SBC. There will be a major focus on the work and report of the Great Commission Resurgence Task Force. This is a significant time as we discuss how to best cooperate together in the Mission of God. Key questions will be raised for each panel member and there will be a time of Q & A.
Topics: These are some possible topics that will be covered
- Gospel-centrality in life and the church
- Discerning what ministries to prioritize in the church, associations, denominations?
- How the Gospel should affect budgets: church, personal, a denomination, etc.
- Cooperative Program
- Challenges facing the SBC in next year
- Name change for the SBC?
- Combining SBC entities?
- Why should I stay in the SBC when there are others doing great mission work?
- And More…
