NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--Executive Committee members meeting in Nashville, Tenn., June 20 elected a new vice president for the Cooperative Program, approved a policy for examining employees' salaries and referred a study of the Disney boycott to the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission.
"We have not missed a meeting. We've been there on time. Everything has been well beyond expectations," Welch told employees of both LifeWay Christian Resources and the SBC Executive Committee.
With the tour of all 50 states, Welch is seeking to heighten a sense of urgency for evangelism among Southern Baptists toward the 2005 kickoff of "The Everyone Can Kingdom Challenge for Evangelism" campaign, which has the goal of baptizing one million people in one year. The effort will begin at next June’s SBC annual meeting in Nashville.
