Members of North Carolina Baptist churches assembled in Greensboro this week to worship, conduct business and hear encouraging ministry reports around the theme, “Who is my neighbor?” This year’s messengers and registered guests totaled 1,682, topping the 1,545 who attended the 2017 annual meeting.
Read the reports from the events in today’s edition of the BRweekly
and throughout the week as more stories are added to the website. Next week’s print edition of the Biblical Recorder
will also be packed with news and information from the annual meeting and associated gatherings.
Beyond our state, a big announcement
came from the International Mission Board’s (IMB) presidential search team Tuesday afternoon. My wife and I have known Paul Chitwood for about a dozen years. He is a good choice to lead the IMB, but he needs our prayers. Leading any Southern Baptist entity is very difficult. Pray that Chitwood will have wisdom, courage and vision to lead the world’s greatest international mission force.
