BP team to cover ministry aboard USS Harry S. Truman

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–A Baptist Press writer-photographer team has been deployed to the USS Harry S. Truman for coverage of ministry aboard the aircraft carrier during the U.S. war effort against Iraq.

Writer Sara Horn and photographer Jim Veneman arrived aboard the Mediterranean-based ship March 20, announced Will Hall, executive editor of Baptist Press and vice president for news services with the Southern Baptist Convention’s Executive Committee.

Horn is a writer in the corporate communications department of LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention. Veneman is director of visual communications at Union University in Jackson, Tenn., a Tennessee Baptist Convention-affiliated university.

The BP team’s coverage, focused on “A Patriot’s Faith,” will explore four areas:

— the intersection of faith and patriotism.

— the work of believers in the military during conflict.

— profiles of Southern Baptist chaplains and their ministries.

— profiles of Southern Baptist service members onboard the USS Harry S. Truman and, as possible, the USS San Jacinto, a guided missile cruiser, in the Mediterranean battle group.
