-- Inspiring Confidence in Cooperation
The Executive Committee of the Southern Baptist Convention is comprised
representatives chosen from qualified states and regions, and
acts on behalf of the Convention between sessions. Executive
Committee officers are elected from these representatives.
Although the Executive Committee does not control or direct the
activities of Convention agencies, it reviews their financial statements
and recommends the Convention annual operating budget. In addition,
it receives and distributes the monies Southern Baptists give in
support of denominational ministries, acts as the recipient and
trust agency for all Convention properties, and provides public
relations and news services.
The Executive Committee also performs other tasks assigned by the
SBC, and promotes the general work of Southern Baptists. To carry
out these duties, the Committee employs an executive
and professional staff in its Nashville offices.
