NASHVILLE (BP) -- The Southern Baptist Convention is built upon relationships between local churches, associations, state conventions and national entities. A new change to church tracking could help strengthen those relationships and provide more information to better reach communities with the Gospel. A growing trend in the SBC is the multisite church -- a single church that meets in multiple locations. Until now the SBC has not addressed this trend in the way the convention tracks congregations.
NASHVILLE (BP) -- LifeWay Films hosted a screening of two films during the Southern Baptist Convention's annual meeting in Dallas. SBC messengers and guests had the opportunity to view "Unbroken: Path to Redemption," the sequel to the 2014 feature film Unbroken, and "Indivisible," a film based on the true story of Army Chaplain Darren Turner and his wife Heather. Bill Craig, director of publishing at LifeWay, introduced Unbroken: Path to Redemption to a packed house of attendees on June 11. He spoke about how Will Graham, grandson of the late evangelist Billy Graham, portrayed his grandfather in the movie. They were set to see an early screening of the movie with Graham the week the elder Graham died.
