Remember the Mission
ABOUT THE MISSION & ME
Remember the Mission! That's the reason I've agreed to be nominated for SBC President in Anaheim, CA on June 14th. Since the beginning of the Convention's founding, the SBC's mission has been to send home & foreign missionaries. Other entities, commissions, and agencies were added later. The SBC exists only 2 days a year while in session. The priority this June is not to elect an SBC President, but to hear the mission boards' reports and ratify their budgets. Join me in Anaheim June 14-15 to Remember the Mission!
My hometown is Tallahassee, FL. After college in Memphis & seminary in Ft. Worth, I served 2 churches in CA & AZ as Sr. pastor for 6 years. I'm a USAF veteran. Kathy & I were missionaries in Tanzania, Kenya, N. Africa & Brazil for 18 years. In E. South America I supervised 300 missionaries for 7 of those years. Later i became the Professor of Missions at Midwestern Seminary for 18 years, serving as Interim President, VP, & Dean of students. As the Senior Professor of Missions, I now reside in Oceanside, CA where Kathy and I are members of New Song Community Church.
