On Sunday night (June 12), the Conservative Baptist Network (CBN) hosted an evening for Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) messengers that featured sermons by Grace Community Church pastor-teacher John MacArthur and Dean of Theology at African Christian University (Lusaka, Zambia) Voddie Baucham.
The sold out event took place in conjunction with the SBC Pastors’ Conference, and a panel discussion hosted SBC presidential candidate Tom Ascol, SBC recording secretary nominee Javier Chavez, and Baucham, who was running for SBC Pastors’ Conference president.
Baucham, who almost didn’t make it to the event due to travel delays, was asked by panel host and CBN spokesperson Brad Jurkovich why he accepted the nomination for SBC Pastors’ Conference president and why he thought the role was important.
“It’s one thing for us to be able to say there’s a need…a crisis or whatever. It’s another thing for us to say, okay, I’m willing to do whatever I can to be a part of the solution,” Baucham said.
