Tanya and I traveled to Greensboro, NC for the Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting. My sponsor church pastor, Dr Frank Page, was being nominated for president. In what came as a shock to many in a three way race, Dr Page took 50.4% of the vote. I’m glad that many people voted for Dr Page- he certainly wasn’t well known by many, but his leadership and the strong CP giving of Taylors First Baptist led many to vote for him. He has said this was not about theology, but methodology. As a Southern Baptist, I love the fact that the 8% of all designated offerings we give from our church go to support our missionaries all over the world, and support some wonderful SBC institutions. I can partner as the pastor of a small church plant and pool our money with churches like Taylors First Baptist to help see the Great Commission move closer to completion. That’s cooperation at it’s best!
