Every summer, one of the highlights for many folks attending the SBC Annual Meeting is the Pastor’s Conference. This year, one of the preachers was our friend and fellow Between the Times contributor Ed Stetzer. As most of our regular readers know, Ed is the president of LifeWay Research, a visiting professor at Southeastern, and a prolific author and blogger. What you may not know is that Ed can flat preach. And when it comes to the declining membership statistics and baptisms among Southern Baptist churches, Ed has a fire in his belly. Ed loves the church, he loves lost people, and he loves to see lost people come to faith in Christ and become part of the church. His sermon was a timely message that was very well received by those in attendance at the Pastor’s Conference. We would highly recommend that you take the time to watch the video below.
By the way, if you’re interested in hearing more of Ed’s thoughts on the SBC, be sure to check back in regularly over the next three weeks. Ed will be publishing an eight-part series on the Houston Convention and the future of the SBC. You won’t want to miss it.
