Update from Florida Baptist Convention leadership

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — As was recently announced, the Florida Baptist Convention was the victim of a highly sophisticated cyber crime which used fraudulent emails. The matter was related to our Send Network Florida account in partnership with the North American Mission Board. We are currently working with forensic auditors and legal authorities to determine how this crime occurred. Meanwhile, we remain confident in our SBC entities, their financial and structural integrity and our missional financial partnerships.
