The document 23-months and more than 100-listening sessions in the making is now in its final stages and ready for your review.
Please take a moment to download and read this important, historic document. Two years’ worth of work that will change the future course of the Fellowship community cannot be digested in a few minutes at the Assembly. You need to take the time to understand what will be presented, and, ultimately, what you will be asked to approve.
Not since the refugees of the Southern Baptist Convention gathered for the Consultation of Concerned Baptists has been there a meeting with such significance for the future of the moderate Baptist movement.
“Anyone involved in local church ministry knows the difference between those events that are important because of an attractive program or charismatic personality and those events that are strategic for the future,” said Daniel Vestal, out-going executive coordinator in his Words from the Executive Coordinator column this week.
“This is one of those times when our annual Assembly is very strategic for CBF’s future mission,” he continued. “In fact, I believe it is one of the most significant gatherings we have had in a number of years. It’s one of those years when as a Fellowship we will be discerning and deciding how to be more effective in our shared ministry.”
So, read the report. Reflect on its recommendations. Pray for the General Assembly’s deliberations. Attend this celebration of Daniel’s life and ministry among us. When it’s all said and done, you’ll be glad you did.
