NEW ORLEANS (BP) — South Louisiana pastor Shane Terrebonne will be nominated for second vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention this week at the 2023 SBC Annual Meeting.
Terrebonne, a Louisiana native and pastor at Gulf Coast Baptist Church in Golden Meadow, will be nominated by his son, Titus, who pastors Alamo Heights Baptist Church in Port Lavaca, Texas.

Shane has served on the Louisiana Baptist Convention Credentials Committee as well as the board of trustees of Louisiana Christian University.
